    MONROE COUNTY, Michigan (WWJ) — The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after an 18-year-old was injured and a horse was killed in a hit-and-run crash Tuesday night.

The incident happened at about 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 3, on North Telegraph Road near I-275 in Ash Township.

Deputies were dispatched to the area after receiving a report of a horse and its rider being struck by a vehicle. The vehicle had left the scene.
