Deputies investigating fatal crash in Mason County


MASON COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- Mason County deputies are investigating following a fatal car crash Saturday evening.

It happened around 6:12 p.m. on US-10 west of Stiles Road in Amber Township.

Deputies say a 2005 Chevy Impala was heading east on US 10 and crossed the center line sideswiping a westbound 2017 Chevy Silverado pickup truck.

Deputies say the Impala then collided head-on with a trailered sailboat. The last collision brought the sailboat through the windshield of the Impala, killing that vehicle’s driver instantly.

Deputies are working to determine the man's identity.

The sheriff's office says it is unclear at this time if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash, which remains under investigation.
