Police are investigating a deadly car crash in Bay Mills Township in Chippewa county.

Deputies found a car in a wooded area off Birch Point Road, near Chickadee Road.

After investigating, they believe Quentin Wright of Brimley misjudged a curve, causing him to go off the road and hit a large tree, throwing him from the car.

Deputies say the car was completely destroyed from impact and a fire that followed.

The sheriff says speed and alcohol were a factor in this crash.

Wright was not wearing a seatbelt.
