BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — A man had to be flown to the hospital after police say he wrecked his Corvette on I-94 late Monday night.

It happened just before 9:00 p.m. as the man was entering Westbound I-94 via the Capital ramp (mile marker 97).  Police say he lost control due to high speeds, went off the road, and slammed into a tree.

The 64-year-old driver had to be pulled from the car, and was flown to the hospital with head injuries.  His condition is unknown.

He had a 12-year-old passenger in the car with him, but that individual was not injured.

I-94 was closed in both directions for approximately 90 minutes as a result of the crash.

Police said both occupants were wearing their seat belts, which likely saved both of their lives.
