Sheriff's office: Man found dead inside vehicle

Posted: Updated:

A man was dead for some time before his body was found in his vehicle, according to the Sanilac County Sheriff's Office.

The 50-year-old Port Sanilac man was found about 7:20 a.m. on the 2500 block of Wheeler Road in Moore Township.

The sheriff's office received a call reporting a vehicle veered off the road, went through a yard and stopped against at tree, the office said.

The Moore Township Fire Department was the first to arrive. They gained entry into the vehicle and discovered the man.

His vehicle was traveling southbound on Wheeler Road when it left the roadway and entered the field. The vehicle traveled through the field four about a quarter mile before it came to a stop, the sheriff's office said.

Deputies do not believe the driver was injured from the accident. The investigation determined the man had a medical event that caused him to become incapacitated.
