One killed in Jefferson Township crash
JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP — One person was killed in a Jefferson Township crash Monday, according to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Richard Behnke reported his deputies were dispatched to a personal injury crash at 11:52 p.m. Monday to Brownsville Street and Highfield Road in Jefferson Township.
Victims of the crash self-transported to Borgess Lee Dowagiac for the injuries they sustained in the crash.
One individual was killed as a result of the crash.
The investigation shows that the vehicle was westbound on Brownsville road when it lost control due to speed and a freshly applied chip seal to the roadway. The vehicle rolled several times and laid to rest in a field. Restraint use is unknown, and speed appears to be a factor, according to deputies.
This crash remains under investigation.
The names of the victims are being withheld until notification to family members are made.
