TALLMADGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Ottawa County Sheriff’s investigators say speeding may’ve been a factor in a fatal one-car crash late Friday afternoon in Tallmadge Township. The investigation continues, though.
It happened around 5:01 p.m., in the 1600 block of Luce Street, east of 20th Avenue.
The Sheriff’s Office says the driver – Benjamin Scott of Wyoming, MI. – was heading eastbound on Luce Street when he lost control of the vehicle, crossed the center line and went off the north side of the road, striking a tree. Police say Scott was declared dead at the scene. No one else was in the vehicle.
Luce Street was closed between 20th Avenue and 8th Avenue until about 9 p.m. Friday.
