A 25-year-old Washington Township man died early Saturday morning after his vehicle ran off the roadway and struck a utility pole.
Ben H. Hessell was killed in the accident at around 1 a.m. which occurred on 27 Mile Road west of Hayes Road, according to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Department.
Police say Hessell was the only person involved in the incident. His 2013 Chevrolet Impala was traveling eastbound on 27 Mile Road when he struck the pole.
Alcohol may have been a factor police say. Hessell was wearing his seat belt at the time of the incident.
Police are continuing to investigate.
