RONALD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man was killed in a single-vehicle crash in rural Ionia County Tuesday morning.
Michigan State Police said around 7:40 a.m. authorities were called to the scene of a crash on M-66 near Long Lake Road in Ronald Township, north of Ionia.
Investigators believe a 2016 Honda Civic was heading southbound on M-66 when the driver crossed the centerline, went off the roadway and struck a tree. The driver died at the scene, according to an MSP news release.
He was identified later Tuesday as Bradley Michael Forist, 30, of Grand Rapids.
MSP said he was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and that drug use is believed to be a factor.
