One person is dead after a single-car accident on Wagner Road between Liberty Road and Scio Church Road Tuesday afternoon, a Washtenaw County sheriff’s office official said.
Spokesman Derrick Jackson said deputies responded to the area just before 3 p.m. Tuesday for a report of a crash on Wagner just south of Liberty. One person was confirmed dead at the scene, but no information was available on the individual until family members are notified, Jackson said.
Deputies are still responding to the scene, and details about what caused the accident were unable to be confirmed as of 4:30 pm. Tuesday, Jackson said.
Initial reports indicated the driver of the vehicle lost control and the vehicle rolled over. The vehicle appeared to be heading north and rolled over to the west side of the road. There was only one person inside the vehicle, reports indicated.
The vehicle was at rest in a ditch while sheriff's deputies investigated the scene at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. The Washtenaw County Medical Examiner was on scene to help with the investigation.
The crash was near the Washtenaw Intermediate School District building on Wagner Road.
Wagner Road remains closed down between Liberty and Scio Church roads.
Jackson said the name of the person who perished in the crash won't be released until Wednesday. He said the family of the woman has yet to be notified and sheriff's office officials want to give them enough time to notify loved ones.
