The scene of a fatal crash on Sept. 4, 2019 in Boston Township, Mich.

BOSTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — One person was killed and another was sent to the hospital after a crash Wednesday near Saranac.

The crash happened around 5:55 p.m. near the intersection of Peck Lake and Morrison Lake roads in Boston Township, about two miles south of Saranac.

Authorities said a 31-year-old Clarksville man was going north on Morrison Lake Road when he lost control of the vehicle, crossed the centerline, crashed into another vehicle and drove off the road into a tree.

The man’s vehicle then caught fire and became engulfed in flames. He was unable to escape and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other driver was taken to the hospital with injuries that weren’t life-threatening.

Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.
