SAINT JOSEPH, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities say a rollover car crash in Saint Joseph left one person dead and injured three others.

Officers responded to the crash near Port Street and Wayne Street just after 6:30 a.m. Once they arrived, they determined that four people were in the car at the time and two people were ejected.

They say one person was pronounced dead at the scene and the other three people were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

According to authorities, the initial investigation said that the four people may have been involved in an altercation at Blossom Acres Housing Complex in Benton Township prior to the crash.

Police are working to figure out if any of the injuries were from the crash or the previous altercation.

Monday, the St. Joseph Department of Public Safety identified the deceased as 23-year-old Jhuone Fonder of Benton Harbor.

The cause of the crash is being investigated.
