Livingston Co. man dies after car crash into tree

MARION TOWNSHIP, MI (WLNS) – A Marion Township man was killed Tuesday morning after a car crash just south of Howell.

The man was driving his pickup truck north on County Farm Road just before 10 a.m. when he lost control and his truck hit a tree.

The 68-year-old driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department says there was slush near the roadway where it happened, but it’s not clear if the driver lost control because of slippery conditions or if he suffered from medical problems.

An autopsy is planned at Sparrow Hospital.

Speed is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
