The Midland County Sheriff's Office is investigating a single vehicle traffic crash that claimed the life of a 16 year old Gladwin male. The incident took place on North Coleman Road near West Shearer Road in Warren Township at approximately 5:33 am on May 21, 2017.
Our investigation indicates that the driver, Koby Lee, age 18 from Alma, was driving his silver 2003 Volkswagen Jetta southbound on North Coleman Road. The vehicle went off the road to the right, struck an embankment and rolled over.
The front seat passenger was Amante Young, age 16 from Gladwin. The rear seat passenger was Thomas Davis, age 18 from Alma.
All three occupants were transported by EMS to Mid Michigan Medical Center in Midland for treatment. Amante was later transported to U of M Hospital. Amante passed away from his injuries on May 30.
The Sheriff's Office is waiting for toxicology reports for a final determination. This report will be forwarded to the Midland County Prosecutor's Office for review once it has been completed.
