TYRONE TOWNSHIP, MICH. - One person is dead after a roll-over crash in a rural section of northern Kent County.

Crews were sent around 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, to the area of 18 Mile Road and Red Pine Drive NW on a report of a rolled-over vehicle that had crashed into a tree.

Police identify the driver as 18-year-old Isiah Slater of Tyrone Township, according to a Kent County Sheriff's Department news release. He was the only person inside the vehicle.

Slater was pronounced dead at the scene.
