LEIGHTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A crash closed part of US-131 Tuesday morning and left a 44-year-old man from the Wayland area seriously injured.
The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office said it happened at 3:44 a.m. on US-131 near 138th Avenue north of Wayland.
When deputies arrived, they found an injured driver trapped in a car that had gone off the road.
