Holly Township — A 28-year-old Holly Township man was killed Thursday in a crash involving a car and a semi-tractor trailer on Grange Hall Road in Holly Township, Michigan State Police said.

According to a preliminary investigation, the man was driving a car west on Grange Hall just west of Fish Lake Road when he lost control of the vehicle and crossed into oncoming traffic. His vehicle was then struck by a gravel hauler that was traveling eastbound, police said.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash, which happened at about 7:20 a.m.

The car's driver was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said. The semi's driver was not injured.

Michigan State Police continue to investigate the cause of the crash and are waiting for results from an autopsy and vehicle examinations. Neither alcohol nor drugs appear to be a factor with the truck's driver.
