ALLEGAN COUNTY, Mich. — A single-car crash resulted in one death in Martin Township Sunday morning, Michigan State Police at the Wayland Post reported.
Around 7 a.m. Sunday, a passerby spotted a car on its side on the right shoulder of southbound US-131 near 118th Avenue. When officers arrived, they discovered a man deceased in the driver’s seat.
The man was identified as David Butela, a 44-year-old from Grand Rapids.

Alcohol is also thought to be a factor in the crash.
Evidence at the scene shows the crash may have happened several hours before it was discovered.
