Man dies in hit and run accident

A Sand Lake man died last Saturday from injuries he suffered after being hit by a car.

Tyler Helton, 20, a 2010 graduate of Tri County High School, was reportedly walking along Stanton Road, between Jones Rd and Maple Hill Rd in Pierson Township, Saturday night, April 21, when he was struck by a white pickup truck about 9:12 p.m. The young man was airlifted to Spectrum Butterworth in Grand Rapids, but died of his injuries.

The driver had fled the scene before Michigan State Police arrived on the scene, but witnesses provided a description of the vehicle and the driver.

The driver, a 57-year-old Howard City man, turned himself into police early Sunday morning, after seeing news reports of the crash.

Police believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Tyler is the son of Marty and Marcia (Rosenberger) Helton, of Sand Lake. The service for Tyler will be Friday at 1:00 p.m. at Solon Center Wesleyan Church (19 Mile and Algoma) with Rev. Tom Holloway and Rev. Wayne Cash officiating. Interment in Sand Lake Cemetery.
