OLIVE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A 26-year-old man from West Olive died after crashing his 2018 Chevy Silverado pickup truck into a tree.

This happened around 8 p.m. on June 5 in Olive Township.

He was driving with another 24-year-old man, heading westbound on Stanton Street when they went off the road, rolled over, and hit a tree.
