A 36-year-old Waterford Township man was killed in an early morning car crash near a daycare center on Walton Road, police said.

The man was driving a 2009 GMC Acadia on eastbound Walton Boulevard near Clintonville Road in Waterford Township when his vehicle left the roadway, struck a utility pole, two trees and then came to rest against the Leapin' Lizards daycare center's building, said police Lt. Scott Good.

Good said police received a call at 3:30 a.m. about a car fire at the location. Officers arrived at the scene and found the deceased in the crashed vehicle, he said. The building was not occupied at the time of the crash.

"Our investigation team is working the case and trying to determine exactly what happened," Good said.
