Detectives seek injuring vehicle

TRAVERSE CITY — Detectives still don’t know how an Ann Arbor man suffered serious injuries near a downtown bar and the victim’s family is offering a $5,000 reward for information that helps identify a vehicle that may be involved.

Travis Trombley, 21, of Ann Arbor, remains hospitalized after an early Saturday morning incident near Union Street Station. Witnesses said he ran alongside a dark sport utility vehicle in a Front Street alley, fell and tumbled.

Traverse City Police Capt. Mike Ayling said detectives still don’t know exactly what happened and whether the incident is a hit-and-run. He said two doctors gave very different appraisals as to what best explains Trombley’s injuries.

“One of them felt the injuries could be consistent with a fall. The other thought they were more consistent with a vehicle,” Ayling said.

Ayling said investigators want to find witnesses who may talked with Trombley and the four or five occupants of a dark sport utility vehicle last seen driving toward Cass Street. It’s believed the vehicle could be dark metallic-blue Chevrolet or GMC SUV, possibly a Tahoe or Yukon that is missing a driver’s side door handle.

People with information are asked to call (231)947-TIPS. Trombley’s family is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the vehicle.
