Iron River Twp. Man Dead in Wreck

An Iron County man is dead, and 3 others are hurt, in a weekend rollover accident.

And police think alcohol was involved.

The county Sheriff’s Department says it happened in Bates Township early Sunday morning, just before 5am Central time.

22-year-old Kevin White of Iron River Township was driving south on the Bates-Gaastra Road, about a mile south of US-2.

His vehicle left the road and rolled over.

White and one of his passengers were thrown from the vehicle.

That person and 2 other passengers were taken to a hospital.

Police say none of the passengers’ injuries appear to be life-threatening.

Besides suspected alcohol use by White, a lack of seatbelt use is thought to be a contributing factor.
