GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Michigan State Police are investigating a crash that killed a Grand Rapids man.

It happened around 6:30 p.m. Sunday on East Fulton Street just east of I-96 in Grand Rapids Township.

Troopers say a Honda Accord on Bridgestone Drive turned left onto E. Fulton Street, in front of a Chevrolet Malibu heading west on E. Fulton Street.

Authorities previously told News 8 one person was injured and in critical condition after the crash. However, state police say the 64-year-old Grand Rapids man driving the Accord died at the scene, despite life-saving efforts by several good Samaritans who were there before first responders arrived.

The other driver, identified as a 16-year-old girl from East Grand Rapids, was not injured in the crash, according to troopers.

Michigan State Police say witnesses shared similar stories about what led to the crash. Troopers say alcohol, drugs, speed and cellphone use do not appear to be factors in the incident.
