COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A man was killed when the vehicle he was driving struck a tree in Comstock Township early Saturday morning.

At 2:53 a.m. Saturday, the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a crash with injuries near the intersection of East MN Avenue and S 28th Street in Comstock Township.

Upon arriving at the scene, deputies determined that a vehicle driven by a 34-year-old man Kalamazoo had been traveling westbound on East MN Avenue when it left the roadway for an unknown reason.

After the vehicle left the roadway, it struck a tree on the south side of the road, splitting it in two and causing fatal injuries to the driver, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle.

The crash is currently under investigation and at this time it is unclear if alcohol and/or speed were factors in the crash.

    “…a vehicle driven by a 34-year-old man Kalamazoo…” So was his name Kalamazoo? Or was a city driving the vehicle?
