Police: Wyoming man killed in one-car crash in Ottawa County

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.

    Is “May’ve” a legit contraction, such as can’t, etc. When writing articles such as this, formal writing would be in order. In other words, words should be spelled out fully, such as “May have”. .
