Man Who Died After Falling Out of Pickup Truck Identified

We now know the name of the man who fell out of the back of a pickup truck in Mason County.

A Grand Rapids man was driving on Young Road in Branch Township before 7 Sunday night.

The sheriff’s office says that’s when his sandal got stuck on the gas pedal.

Several people were sitting in the bed of the pickup, and another three were on the tailgate.

William Dingman from Crystal was one of those people on the tailgate.

He fell off and hit his head on the pavement, dying at the scene.

The sheriff’s office says speed was also a factor in the crash.
