A 72-year-old male is dead after he was involved in a car accident Thursday afternoon.

It happened on Saginaw Road near Oak Road in Tuscola County's Vassar Township about 2:40 p.m.

The 72-year-old was driving eastbound on Saginaw when he swerved into the westbound lane and left the road. His vehicle struck a driveway, causing the vehicle to go airborne and land in a ditch, the Tuscola County Sheriff's Office said.

Witnesses and responding officers attempted CPR on the man, but could not revive him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver, from Mayville, was alone in the vehicle at the time of the crash, the sheriff's office said.

An autopsy is pending.
