HOPKINS TWP. — A Hopkins Township man died Friday night after he lost control of his pickup truck and ended up in a field.

It happened just before 9:45 p.m. on 22nd Street north of the Hopkins Village limit in Allegan County.

Investigators say the pickup truck was heading north on 22nd street. The driver was coming out of a curve when he lost control of his truck. The vehicle went off the road, overturned and eventually ended up in a field.

The driver was ejected from the truck and died on the scene.

Allegan County sheriff's deputies say the man was not wearing a seat belt and alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash. The man’s name is being withheld because of the ongoing investigation.
