NELSON TWP., Mich. — The Kent County Sheriff's office is investigating after a man was killed and another man injured in a two-vehicle accident Saturday.

Deputies say Phillip Garcia, 18, was driving southbound on Myers Lake Avenue when he ran the stop sign at 18 Mile Road, striking a vehicle driving eastbound that had the right-of-way.

The driver of the eastbound car, identified as Edward Czarnecki of Oakfield Township, was killed in the crash.

Garcia sustained non-life threatening injuries in the crash.

Alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash and both drivers were wearing their seat belts.
