(CALVIN TOWNSHIP) – Authorities believe alcohol was a factor in a one vehicle crash Saturday morning.
The Cass County Sheriff's Department was called to Tharp Lake Road and Mount Zion Street in Calvin Township at 5 AM Saturday.
Deputies say 32 year old Steven Robinson and his passenger 37 year old Jamie Whited were driving north when Robinson failed to negotiate a curve where Tharp Lake Road transitions into Mount Zion Street. The vehicle left the road and overturned before coming to rest in a field.
Life Care Ambulance transported Robinson to Borgess Lee Memorial Hospital in Dowagiac for evaluation. Whited was released at the scene. Deputies say she was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash, which remains under investigation.
