Police: Man seriously injured after fall

TRAVERSE CITY — A man found injured in an alleyway near Union Street likely fell and hit his head, authorities said.

Traverse City Police Capt. Mike Ayling said the man remains seriously injured in Munson Medical Center after the early Saturday morning incident. He said detectives initially believed it could be a hit-and-run, but a doctor doesn't believe the man was hit by a car.

"A witness said he saw the victim running alongside a vehicle," Ayling said. "He saw him fall and described it as a 'tumble.'"

The incident took place about 2:30 a.m. in a downtown alleyway near several Union Street bars.
