The Barry County Sheriff’s Office investigated a single vehicle fatal crash Wednesday afternoon on Lockshore Road near Milo Road in Prairieville Township.
The investigation showed a pickup truck was traveling northbound on Lockshore Road when it ran off the roadway to the left and collided into a tree. The 76-year-old male driver was air lifted to an area hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries. The driver was the only occupant in the vehicle.
The crash is still under investigation. Alcohol, drugs, and speed do not appear to be factors.
Sheriff's Office personnel were assisted at the scene by Barry Township Police, Prarieville Fire Department, Hickory Corers Fire Department, Delton Fire Department, Life Care EMS, AirCare, and Barry County Central Dispatch.
This was the second fatal accident on Lockshore Road this week.
