Utility workers discover man dead in ditch after single-car crash
A Clinton man was found dead Tuesday night after a crash on Michigan Avenue in Saline Township, Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies said.
Deputies said the 45-year-old man was ejected from a 2004 Jeep that went off the road, hit a tree, went airborne, hit another tree and came to rest on its roof.
The man was found at 11 p.m. by DTE workers who were in the area of West Michigan Avenue and Case Road, working to repair an electrical line, deputies said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities have not released his name.
Sheriff's department spokesman Derrick Jackson said the man was the only occupant of the Jeep. The accident remains under investigation.
The crash location is between Saline and Clinton.
