Huron Township police say speed and alcohol may have played a roll in a fatal car crash that occurred on Hannan Road early Sunday morning.
After the crash ocurred, police say witnesses attempted to save the driver pinned in the fire engulfed car but unfortunately were unsuccessful.
Police and fire units responded to the 18400 block of Hannan Road at 1:19 a.m.
Upon arrival, officers and medical personnel on the scene found the vehicle involved fully engulfed in flames and the driver trapped inside the vehicle.
The driver of the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene and has yet to be identified.
“I want to thank the multiple residents that did all they could to try and free to the victim from the vehicle. They each risked their own well-being to try and help without hesitation. Unfortunately, there was nothing they could do. It shows what a great community we live in,” said Everette Robbins, director of public safety.
The Michigan State Police Accident Reconstruction Team responded to the scene to assist the Huron Township Traffic Services Unit with the investigation.
The investigation is ongoing and further information will be released when it’s available, Robbins said.
An initial investigation shows that speed and alcohol appear to be factors in the crash.
No one else was injured.
