CHESHIRE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man in his 70s died following a single-vehicle crash in rural southern Allegan County Tuesday.

It happened shortly after 5 p.m. along 108th Avenue near 38th Street in Cheshire Township.

The victim’s name wasn’t released Tuesday night.

Authorities say that alcohol and speed are not believed to be factors.
