1 Dead, 3 Macomb Co. Residents Injured in Bruce Twp. Crash
A 21-year-old Bruce Township man was killed, and three other young adults were injured in a single-car crash early Tuesday morning.
The Macomb County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a fatal crash in Bruce Township that occurred just after midnight Tuesday, and left a 21-year-old Bruce Township man dead and three Macomb County residents injured.
Investigators said a 1999 Jeep Cherokee traveling northbound on Hipp Road, just north of 36 Mile Road, left the roadway and struck a tree head-on.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash, and alcohol may be a factor, according to a statement released by the Macomb County Sheriff’s Department.
There were four people inside the vehicle. The front seat passenger, identified as Alexander Gentry, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver, a 25-year-old male and the driver side passenger, a 25-year-old female, both from Washington Township, were transported to Mount Clemens Regional Medical Center and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The second rear-seat passenger, a 21-year-old Macomb Township female, was transported to Mount Clemens Regional Medical Center and then transferred to Detroit Receiving Hospital.
Investigators said airbags were deployed, but it’s unknown if all the occupants were wearing seat belts.
