PERRY TWP. — A 51-year-old man was killed early this morning in a vehicle crash on I-69 east of Woodbury Road.
At about 4:40 a.m., dispatchers received a call that stated a truck had crashed into a guardrail on I-69 near Woodbury.
Officials said a 51-year-old man was westbound on I-69, when his Ford Ranger went into the median and struck the guardrail, and then came to a stop in the eastbound lanes.
Sheriff Brian BeGole declined to provide details about the crash.
A medical examiner investigator reached the scene about 7 a.m.
Deputies from the Shiawassee County Sheriff’s Office, and Perry, Vernon and Laingsburg fire departments responded to the crash, and temporarily closed eastbound I-69.
They re-routed eastbound traffic off I-69 at Woodbury, and it re-entered I-69 at M-52. Westbound I-69 was also closed briefly while vehicles were removed. Traffic reopened on the highway at 10 a.m.
