Rollover car accident leaves one dead in Chippewa County

CHIPPEWA COUNTY — The Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office reports that officers were dispatched to I-75 near 6 mile at approximately 2:20 a.m. Monday morning.

Early reports state that a young Kalamazoo man was driving with a female passenger when he may have fallen asleep.

The vehicle drove into the median and rolled over multiple times.

The passenger was a young woman from Sault Ste. Marie.

She did not survive the crash.

Northbound traffic was previously closed from M-28 North while investigators were on the scene. The roadway has since been re-opened to all traffic.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor at this time.

The Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Sault Ste. Marie Police Department and Border Patrol.
