Man Arrested In Fatal Iosco County Crash

A 34-year-old Hale man was arrested in Iosco County Tuesday for impaired driving resulting in the death of another man.

State Police troopers were called to the scene on M-65 near Slosser Trail around 11:30 P.M. after a collision between a 2013 Ford Taurus and a 2015 Fiat 500. Investigators say the man was driving the Taurus heading north and turned directly into the path of the Fiat, driven by a 42-year-old Hale man. That man was critically injured and died later at a hospital. A 22-year-old Hale woman, who was the victim’s passenger, suffered minor injuries, as did the at fault driver.

Police arrested him on suspicion of driving while intoxicated causing death. The crash remains under investigation.
