JACKSON COUNTY, Mich. (WLNS) — Officials with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a single car crash that killed a man Tuesday.
County deputies, Michigan State Police, the Liberty Township Fire Department and Jackson Community Ambulance responded to a single car crash around 4:30 p.m. on U.S. 127 South near Reed Road in Liberty Township.
According to Sheriff Gary Schuette, 43-year-old Benjamin Langenderfer was heading south on U.S. 127 South near Reed Road when his car veered off the road.
Langenderfer then overcorrected and re-entered the roadway, crossing all lanes of traffic and subsequently causing the 2015 Kia Optima to overturn multiple times.
The Ohio man died as a result of his injuries at the crash site.
Schuette says it is still unknown if alcohol was a factor in causing the crash.
