GENEVA TWP., MI (WHTC) - Van Buren County investigators are trying to piece together what happened late Wednesday night on a road east of South Haven.
At this point, they know that 25-year-old Jason Woodall of South Haven is dead, 20-year-old Cassandra Hayes of Bangor was hurt, and a 21-year-old South Haven man whose name wasn’t immediately disclosed is behind bars. Deputies were dispatched to County Road 687, between Phoenix Road and 8th Avenue, on a report of a single-vehicle, rollover crash, and found Woodall trapped in his truck, already dead from his injuries. While Hayes was being treated, the unnamed man, who deputies learned was driving another vehicle that may have been involved in the crash, started being “combative” and was arrested on obstruction charges.
The investigation into the circumstances of this incident continues, and tips to Silent Observer are welcome.
