A crash Sunday in Iosco Township left a Howell man seriously injured.

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called out just before 9am to a single-vehicle crash on Crofoot Road east of Kern Road. A preliminary investigation revealed that a 2004 Ford Explorer driven by a 21-year-old Howell resident was traveling east on Crofoot Road when the vehicle left the roadway east of Kern Road. It then struck a tree, trapping the driver inside. After being extricated by personnel from the Fowlerville Fire Department, the driver was flown by Survival Flight to the U of M Hospital in Ann Arbor in serious condition.

The roadway was closed for approximately two hours during the investigation. Authorities say alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash and the incident remains under investigation. Deputies were also assisted at the scene by Livingston County EMS. (JK)
