Armada Township — Michigan State Police say a fatal rollover crash in Armada Township Wednesday morning was caused by a driver who drove through a stop sign.

The fatal crash took place about 6 a.m. in the area of Bordman and Miller. The area is west of Riley Center Road and east of North Avenue. 

Alcohol and narcotics may be a factor, according to Michigan State Police.


According to a tweet from state police, the 24-year-old driver of a Ford F-150 ran the stop sign on southbound Miller, striking a Jeep Patriot headed east on Bordman.

The 61-year-old driver of the Jeep, a Berlin Township resident, was declared dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup is in stable condition at a local hospital, police said. 

The Michigan Department of Transportation says that as of Tuesday night, some 756 people had died in car crashes in Michigan in 2018. That number is down 17 from this time last year.
