Mattawan man killed in single-vehicle crash in Antwerp Township

VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. - A 60-year-old Mattawan mas killed when his car veered off the road and struck a tree in Antwerp Township on Thursday night. 

The vehicle was traveling east on 62nd Ave. when the driver failed to navigate a slight curve in the road. 

The driver was not wearing his seatbelt and officials believe that alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. 

The tree became a safety concern after the crash and the Van Buren County Road Commission has temporarily closed 62nd Ave. as a result. 

The tree is scheduled to be removed later today, and the road will be reopened once that process is complete. 

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
