Man Killed In Early Morning Crash In White Lake Township

WHITE LAKE TWP. (WWJ) - A 21-year-old man is dead after a two car accident in Oakland County's White Lake Township.

The accident happened around 1 a.m. Tuesday along a sharp curve on Bogie Lake Road at Cedar Island Road.

Lt. Larry Sheldon said the man was traveling northbound on Bogie Lake Road when he turned in front of a southbound traveling vehicle, driven by a 65-year-old man, and was broadsided.

"It's still under investigation," said Sheldon. "We don't know if the 21-year-old attempted to make a U-turn or was just turning left, but there's no driveway or roadway in that area."

The younger man was declared dead at the scene. The older man was transported to a local hospital in serious condition.

Sheldon said speed, alcohol and weather do not appear to be factors in the crash, which remains under investigation.

Names of those involved have not yet been released.
