Sparta man killed in crash on M-57

A Sparta man died early Wednesday morning after rolling his vehicle on M-57 in Courtland Township.

According to the Michigan State Police Rockford Post, the crash occurred on M-57 (14 Mile Rd) shortly after 6 a.m., November 1. The investigation showed that a 2004 Chevrolet Impala, driven by Vincent John Cooper, 20, of Sparta, was travelling eastbound on M-57 near Berrigan Ave. and attempted to overtake a semi-truck, also eastbound on M-57. The Impala drove off onto the left shoulder of the roadway, lost control, then spun back across the roadway before striking a curb on the right shoulder of the roadway, going into the ditch, and rolling multiple times.  

Cooper was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Police said he was not wearing his seatbelt and speed is believed to be a factor in the crash. 

The Michigan State Police were assisted at the scene by the Courtland Twp. Fire Department, Rockford Ambulance, and Kent County Road Commission.
