Three passengers in the vehicle, two females and one male, were treated at the scene and released.

Based on the investigation, the 2000 Chevrolet Blazer was traveling northbound on Lucas Road when the driver lost control and entered the ditch on the west side of the road.

After entering the ditch, the vehicle struck some small trees and overturned, coming to rest on the driver's side.

After the accident, all three passengers were able to exit the vehicle on their own, Sheriff Celello said.

The sheriff's office was assisted at the scene by the Michigan State Police, Felch Fire Department, Nordic Ambulance and Wilson's Towing.

The individuals were not wearing seat belts and speed and alcohol are believed to be a factor, Sheriff Celello said.

The accident remains under investigation.
