The crash happened around 11:30 p.m. on N. Broadway Road north of M-43 in Carlton Township, authorities said.

Michigan State Police were responding to a report of a boy possibly hitchhiking on M-43 when they learned he walked to a nearby home, saying he had been a passenger in the vehicle that crashed.

Troopers located the scene of the crash, where they found the 38-year-old female driver unresponsive, MSP said. She died at the scene. Her name has not yet been released.

State police believe the woman was driving north on N. Broadway Road when she drove off the road, overcorrected and lost control of her vehicle before it flipped over. Neither speed, alcohol nor drugs are believed to be factors in the crash.
