Man crashes into building after being run off road in Ypsilanti Township
Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies are investigating the crash at a strip mall in the 300 block of South Ford Boulevard.
The man was not injured, but his vehicle and the building were damaged, township interim Fire Capt. Thomas Stachlewitz said.
Stachlewitz said the driver crashed into a steel door and picture window at 12:33 p.m in a vacant area of the strip mall, causing a fire to start underneath the SUV. The driver got out of the vehicle and the fire had extinguished itself by the time firefighters arrived, Stachlewitz said.
Washtenaw County sheriff's investigators could not immediately be reached for comment this morning.
