GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A man has died after his vehicle slid into oncoming traffic on M-37 Sunday night.

At about 9:20 p.m., Theodore Heath, 21, of Hastings was driving northbound in a Ford Taurus when he slid into oncoming traffic, colliding with a Chevrolet Pickup truck that was heading southbound.

Heath was transported to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital, where he later died of his injuries.

The driver of the truck, Jack Rose, 54, also of Hastings was treated for minor injuries.

Icy road conditions appear to be a factor in the crash.
