PORTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man has died after a car crash in Portland Township early Sunday morning, deputies said.

The Ionia County Sheriff’s Office responded to the one-car crash around 12:30 a.m. on East David Highway near Divine Highway.

Deputies said a 2014 Ford Taurus crashed on the side of the road and the driver was dead inside.

The investigation shows the driver of the Taurus, a 31-year-old man from Woodland, was going east on East David Highway at a high rate of speed when he lost control and drove off the road, flipping the car several times.

Deputies say the driver was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and believe alcohol and narcotics may have played a factor.

This crash remains under investigation at this time.
