(CBS DETROIT) - Michigan State Police are investigating a hit-and-run crash that injured two people on Belle Isle in Detroit on Monday.

A 23-year-old man from Ypsilanti was located and taken into custody.

Police say the driver of a Mercury four-door left the roadway while driving on Riverbank Drive, and drove onto the beach, hitting two victims.

The driver fled the scene.

The victims have been identified as a 12-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl. Both were critically hurt in the crash and are still in critical condition.

The investigation is ongoing and will be turned over to the prosecutor for review.

Belle Isle was closed for a few hours on Memorial Day due to maximum vehicle capacity being reached and after the hit-and-run, the entrance to the island was blocked off.
