Man Involved in Missaukee County Crash Passes Away

The man involved in a Missaukee County crash last week has passed away.

The crash happened on last Wednesday when a 72-year-old man lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a tree on Geers Road in Richland Township near McBain.

The Missaukee County sheriff says Duane Sluiter was headed eastbound when he veered off the road.

The collision with the tree caused Sluiter to be ejected from his seat.

The man was airlifted to Munson Medical Center in Traverse City, where he died several days later.

No one else was involved in the accident.
