KALAMAZOO COUNTY, Mich. — A man is dead following a Saturday night car crash.

Police have identified the driver as Chadd Michael Wood, 48, from Lawton.

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office said the accident happened on W. Q Avenue in Texas Township just after 8 p.m. Wood lost control of his vehicle west of S. 8th Street, left the roadway, and crashed into a tree. The car then burst into flames.

Officials said nearby witnesses used fire extinguishers to keep the fire under control and removed Wood from the car until rescue crews arrived. Unfortunately, lifesaving efforts didn’t work, and Wood was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
