Grand Ledge man found dead after trying to free stuck vehicle from sand

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Authorities say a Lansing-area man apparently collapsed and died after trying to free his stuck vehicle from sand in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula.

Police say the body of 65-year-old Gerald Cedarstaff of Grand Ledge was found by hunters Tuesday in a wooded area of Wexford County’s Hanover Township.

Cedarstaff’s vehicle was stuck in sand about a half-mile from his body. Investigators say Cedarstaff apparently tried to free the vehicle before walking from the area. An autopsy has ruled out foul play, but a determination about cause of death is pending toxicology tests.
