A 24-year-old Dexter-area man died Wednesday night when the car he was riding in rolled over on Lima Center Road south of Island Lake Road in Dexter Township.
Christopher James Boyer was pronounced dead at the scene, Washtenaw County sheriff’s deputies said in a press release. The driver of the car, David William Fishburn, 25, of the Chelsea area, was taken to the University of Michigan Hospital with injuries not believed to be life threatening, deputies said.
The crash occurred about 8:30 p.m. when Fishburn, who was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu south on North Lima Center Road, lost control of the car, deputies said in the press release. Speed, alcohol and road conditions appear to be factors in the crash, according to the release.
Both men were wearing seatbelts, deputies said. The investigation continues.
Huron Valley Ambulance and the Dexter Area Fire Department assisted at the crash scene.
