Suspect in hit-and-run crash appears in court

Hit-and-run suspect Steven Patrick Guzina made an appearance in court for a preliminary hearing of the crash that took the life of Myron Jarrett, a veteran Detroit police officer.

The accident took place last October 28 near Monica Street and Puritan Avenue. According to reports, Jarrett was assisting an investigation when an unknown van struck him and two other officers. Jarret sustained multiple injuries and was immediately rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The two other officers were fortunately not injured. Guzina, the driver of the van, left his stalled vehicle at the crash scene and escaped the scene by foot. He was later arrested at a bus stop near Grand River Avenue and Schaefer Highway.

The 54-year-old suspect was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, driving under the influence causing death, driving under the influence causing serious bodily injury, hit and run, and reckless driving causing death and/or serious injuries.

We at Ravid & Associates, P.C. are deeply saddened by this tragic news. We send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Myron Jarrett.
