A Livingston County man is dead following a crash Monday morning in Hartland Township.
According to the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, at approximately 9:24 a.m., deputies were dispatched to a single vehicle fatal crash on Highland Road and Pleasant Valley Road.
A preliminary investigation indicated that a 75-year-old male Hartland resident was driving a 2019 Buick Encore eastbound on Highland Road, when it left the roadway, went into the median and struck several traffic sign posts before coming to rest a few hundred feet east of Pleasant Valley Rd. Authorities say it appears that the driver, who was pronounced dead at the scene, sustained a major medical episode while driving that caused the crash.
Neither alcohol nor speed appear to be factors in this crash.
Deputies were assisted on the scene by the Hartland Area Fire Department and by Livingston County EMS.
This crash remains under investigation by the Livingston County Major Crash Team.
