Man killed in weekend crash is identified
A man killed in a crash early Sunday in Salem Township has been identified as 20-year-old Brennen Eugene Smith of South Lyon, Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies said.
Deputies said Smith was traveling north on Dixboro Road in a 2003 Ford pickup truck when he lost control of the vehicle about 12:52 a.m., and it struck a tree. He was ejected and was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident near 6 Mile Road.
A 20-year-old male passenger was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Police are investigating whether alcohol and speed are factors in the crash.
Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Thomas Pennington did not immediately have further details this morning.
