FLINT (WJRT) -

(02/25/14) - State Police say an elderly Mt. Morris Township man, hit by a driver who refused to stop for troopers in Flint earlier this month, has passed away.

Seventy-five-year-old James Thompson died over the weekend.

Police have said the 28-year-old man was driving on a suspended license and was released on bond on that charge as they continue to investigate. 

Troopers had tried to pull him over for a tinted window violation. He didn't stop, and they followed him - with lights and sirens activated.

Police say the pursuit lasted 28 seconds, until the driver ran a stop sign and crashed into Thompson.
