VALLEY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — One man was killed in a crash in rural Allegan County Saturday morning.

The crash happened around 2 a.m. on 118th Avenue just east of 46th Street in Valley Township, west of the city of Allegan.

The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office says a westbound SUV crossed the center line and hit a car going eastbound.

Police say the woman driving the SUV has some lacerations and was taken to the hospital. The man driving the eastbound vehicle died at the scene.

He was identified by authorities Monday as Marcus Difonzo, 33, originally of Australia but recently living in the Allegan area.

Investigators say alcohol and marijuana use appear to be a contributing factor for the driver of the SUV, who police identify as the at-fault driver. The sheriff’s office said once it’s investigation is complete, it will pass the case along to the county prosecutor for a decision on charges.
