MONTAGUE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 26-year-old western Michigan man faces charges in a hit-and-run crash that killed a 50-year-old Detroit-area bicyclist.

The Muskegon Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1KRr8Wh ) that Ronnie Jo Claflin of Muskegon Township surrendered Thursday to police. He had been sought for failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing death.

Susan Cummings, a nurse from Lake Orion, was part of a group of people bicycling across Michigan’s Lower Peninsula to raise money for the Hope Water Project. She was struck Aug. 8 by a truck while riding from Montague Township to Bay City.

Prosecutors have said the truck driver failed to stop although he “knew or had reason to know he’d been at fault in that accident.”
