TALLMADGE TWP., MI (WHTC) - A 21-year-old Marne man has succumbed to injuries suffered in a single-vehicle crash near Standale on Saturday night.
According to Ottawa County Sheriff's Sergeant Christie Wendt, Evan Westrate was driving his pickup westbound on Luce Street around 9:30 PM, and as he passed 8th Avenue, he lost control on a curve in the road. The truck rolled over, tossing the unbuckled driver out onto the pavement, before righting itself and ending up in a ditch. Westrate was taken to Spectrum-Butterworth Hospital, where he was pronounced dead yesterday.
Wendt added that speed and alcohol were considered factors in the crash.
