Auto accident claims
life of Ray Township man

Observer Staff Writer
      The Macomb County Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal accident that claimed the life of a Ray Township man.
       The sheriff's office reported that on Feb. 8, Ben Hessell, 25, was driving a Chevrolet Impala eastbound on 27 Mile Road west of Hayes around 1:11 a.m. in Washington Township.
       Preliminary investigations show the vehicle left the roadway and struck a utility pole. Hessell, the lone occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.
       County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said alcohol may be a factor in the crash, though this wouldn't be confirmed until toxicology reports are completed. Hessell was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
       The sheriff's office is continuing its investigation into the matter.
