KIMBALL TOWNSHIP, MI – Two people were killed in separate vehicle crashes last night and this morning.
At about 10:30 Monday night, St. Clair County Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to the area of Dunlap Road and Flinchbaugh Road in Kimball Township for a crash. When they arrived, they found a wrecked Harley Davidson motorcycle and the driver of the motorcycle. Further investigation led to finding a 2005 GMC Envoy that had gone off the road into a wooded area.
The preliminary investigation into the crash found that the Envoy, driven by a 31-year-old Port Huron woman was heading southbound on Dunlap, crossed the centerline and struck the motorcycle, driven by a 55-year-old man, from Greenwood Township.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The woman was arrested for suspicion of operating while intoxicated causing death. The crash remains under investigation. Kimball Township Fire and Rescue and Tri-Hospital EMS assisted at the scene.
Shortly before 5:30 this morning, St. Clair County Sheriff Deputies were called to Lapeer Road and Wales Center Road in Wales Township for a single vehicle crash.
When deputies arrived on scene, they discovered a 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche had been traveling eastbound on Lapeer, went off the road into the ditch and rolled several times, ending up on its wheels. The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, a 26-year-old man, from Melvin, had been ejected from the truck. He was transported by Tri-Hospital EMS to McLaren Port Huron Hospital, where he was pronounced dead from his injuries.
Emmett Fire and Rescue assisted at the scene of the crash, which remains under investigation.
