COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. — An 80-year-old Kalamazoo man has died following a multi-vehicle crash in Kalamazoo County on Wednesday.
Michigan State Police (MSP) says the crash happened on Gull Road near 26th Street in Comstock Township.
MSP says a 2006 Toyota Corolla tried to turn left into a Walmart from Gull Road but did not yield the right of way. As a result, the Toyota was hit by a westbound 1992 Ford Mustang, shoving the Ford into a stopped Honda CRV, troopers explain.
The crash resulted in the death of the Toyota driver, identified as 80-year-old James Hollander, who died at the scene, according to MSP.
We’re told the Ford driver, a 23-year-old man from Augusta, was taken to a hospital for minor injuries.
Drugs and alcohol are not suspected factors in the crash.
MSP tells us the crash affected traffic flow for two-and-a-half hours.
The crash is currently under investigation while officials await lab results.
