On Saturday, May 7th, 2016 at 6:30 am, Jackson County Sheriff Deputies responded to Fishville Road near Lammon Road in Norvell Township for reports of a single vehicle injury crash.

A 51 year-old Grass Lake man lost control of his Chevy Venture van and struck a tree. Two of the van’s passengers fled the scene before police arrived.

The driver was injured and was transported to Henry Ford Allegiance Health for medical treatment by Lenawee Community Ambulance. His injuries are thought to be non life threatening.

According to Sheriff Steven Rand, drugs appear to be a factor in the crash. The deputies that responded found drug paraphernalia near the vehicle.

Charges are being requested from Prosecuting Attorney Jerry Jarzynka’s office for Operating While Impaired-Drugs.
