Family asks Kent Co. hit-and-run suspect to come forward

HOWARD CITY, Mich. (WOOD)  — The suspect in a Cedar Springs hit-and-run last Thursday is still on the run.

Now, the father of the victim has a message to the driver.

Al Maas is urging whoever hit his son, Alex Maas, to do the right thing and turn themselves in.

“He graduated this last January,” Al Maas said with his son’s senior photo in hand. The 18-year-old’s senior picture was taken not long ago.

It’s a stark contrast to alarming images taken after the crash.

“I didn’t even know what he was going to be looking like when I went to see him. Once he got in the light and I see how swelled his face (was), kind of had to have my own time for a minute,” Al Maas said. “He was walking from work to Meijer, to deposit his check at the bank inside Meijer. He was hit by a car and that’s the last thing he remembers.”

Al Maas says the driver took off and left his son without any help near the intersection of 17 Mile Road NE and Edgerton Avenue NE in Cedar Springs Thursday night.
