Ft. Gratiot Man Dies in Crash

A 32 year old Fort Gratiot Township man was killed last night following a crash in Clyde Township.

Deputies from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to Beard Road and North Road at about 9:45 Monday evening for a one vehicle crash.  Upon arrival they determined the man had been driving eastbound on Beard Road.  He proceeded to drive his 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee through the stop sign at Beard and North Road.  He continued driving down a private drive, eventually striking a garage at the residence and an enclosed trailer that was next to the home.  The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Fort Gratiot Fire and Rescue and Tri-Hospital EMS assisted at the site of the crash, which remains under investigation.
