BRANDON TOWNSHIP, MI – A Brandon Township man died from injuries suffered Saturday when the utility task vehicle he was riding in struck a rock and rolled over, ejecting him from the vehicle.
Chad Daniel Richmond, 41, was taken to Ascension Genesys Hospital in Grand Blanc Township by a friend. The driver of the 2008 Polaris Ranger RZR vehicle, a 38-year-old Springfield Township man, suffered a broken collarbone.
The accident happened Saturday, April 10 in the 3100 block of Oakwood Road in Brandon Township. The Springfield Township man was driving the vehicle around a residence when the crash occurred. The exact time was unclear as it was not reported to deputies until Monday.
Neither man was wearing a seat belt or a helmet. Alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash. The Sheriff’s Office Crash Reconstruction Unit is investigating the case.
