FILLMORE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — One man was killed in a Friday morning car crash south of Holland.

The crash happened around 6:20 a.m. at the intersection of 141st Avenue and 56th Street in Fillmore Township.

Michigan State Police say a westbound Jeep failed to stop at the sign at the intersection and collided with a northbound pickup truck, which had the right of way.

The driver of the Jeep, 33-year-old Diego Garcia-Palencia of the Kalamazoo area, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the pickup, a 40-year-old Hamilton man, was hospitalized with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

While the crash remained under investigation Friday, MSP said neither drugs nor alcohol appear to have been involved.
