Mcnabney was charged Monday in 32-A District Court with failing to stop at the scene of an accident, a five-year felony, and fourth offense of being a habitual offender, which is punishable by life in prison, according to Harper Woods Police.

A magistrate set his bond at $75,000and scheduled his next court appearance for Aug. 22. If he posts bond, Mcnabney is required to wear a GPS tether and submit to random drug testing.

Police also said Monday the victim in the crash remains in critical condition.

Mcnabney turned himself into police at the Detroit Detention Center the day after the crash and told officers he was wanted in connection with the hit-and-run, according to authorities.

Officials said they have recovered the pickup truck involved in the crash.

Mcnabney has several convictions for crimes, including delivery of controlled substances, assault with intent to do greatly bodily harm, unarmed robbery and possession of cocaine, according to the Michigan Department of Corrections.

He was last released from prison in 2015 after about five years for an unarmed robbery charge, the department said.
