Photos: Suspect in Fatal Hit-and-Run Arrested in New Baltimore

A 49-year-old Algonac man, who was killed in a Sunday crash, has been identified by police.

A 40-year-old New Baltimore man was expected to face charges of leaving the scene of a fatal accident that claimed the life of a 49-year-old Algonac resident, according to the St. Clair County Sheriff's Office.

Timothy Clore was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at approximately 4:30 p.m. Sunday at the 9400 block of Dixie Highway in Ira Township after a pickup truck hit his motorcycle, the Sheriff's Office said.

"The suspect fled from that location to New Baltimore, where he lost control of his vehicle," Chief Tim Wiley said.

He then ran into his home on Baltimore Street, where police from the Sheriff’s Office, New Baltimore, and Michigan State Police responded after citizens spotted him, authorities said.

As a search warrant was being prepared to enter the home, the suspect came out. He was arrested without incident. He was taken to River District Hospital to be examined for injuries from the accident and then transported to St. Clair County Intervention and Detention Center, the Sheriff's Office stated in a news release.

The crash remains under investigation and charges, including leaving the scene of a fatal accident, were being sought, the Sheriff's Office stated.

It was not immediately released whether speed or alcohol were factors.

Our Prayers and deepest sympathies go out to the families and those involved in this situation. My husband was the one who stopped and took the photos on this story. We were on our way home and saw all the police cars on Baltimore Street and at that point didn't know what happened. It just goes to show how precious life is and in the blink of an eye how lives can be changed. I can only hope and pray some good may come from such a tragic event. Herb my condolences to you personally and to my friends Roy and Jessica Clore (nephew of the Tim and his wife).
