Man dies after vehicle flips several times in Flint, police say

FLINT, MI – A man died after crashing a vehicle Friday morning in Flint, police said.

A silver 2002 Toyota Tundra crashed at 10:20 a.m. Friday, April 23, near Welch Boulevard and Seneca Street after being reported stolen roughly 10 minutes earlier in Mt. Morris Township, according to a news release from the Flint Police Department.

The vehicle was headed south on Clio Road at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control of the vehicle and it went off the right shoulder of the road as the car turned east onto Welch Boulevard, police said.

The vehicle flipped several times after the man tried to correct the steering, police said. The driver was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced deceased at the scene.

Police said it’s not believed the man had on a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The driver was not the registered owner of the vehicle, per the release. Police have not yet found or notified the driver’s next of kin and have not identified the deceased as a result.

An investigation into the fatal crash is ongoing, police said. Speed is believed to be the main factor in the crash and it’s unclear if drugs or alcohol were involved.

The Flint Police Department has asked anyone with information on the crash to contact Detective Randy Matteson at 810-237-6816 or to remain anonymous contact Crime Stoppers of Flint and Genesee County at 1-800-422-JAIL (5245), on the P3 Tips mobile app, or online at CrimeStoppersofFlint.com.
