Car wreck kills Kalamazoo man

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A Kalamazoo man is dead after losing control of his car at the notorious curve on the U.S. 131 Business Loop.

Witnesses reportedly told Kalamazoo Township Police that the driver, a man in his 50’s was traveling at a high rate of speed and lost control on the curve heading northbound at about 7:20 thursday  evening.

They say the car flipped and rolled down a steep embankment, into a grove of trees, ejecting the driver from the spinning wreckage. Then the car landed on top of him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation and clean-up closed the Business Loop for several hours.

There have been several fatal accidents at the location, including one last November that left two off-duty paramedics dead and several others injured after a car they were riding in crashed, and a second car went off the road at the identical location and struck them.
