A South Haven man is dead after his car rolled over at least five times on Saturday night in Michigan.

Van Buren County Police tell Newscenter 16 that the accident happened just before midnight on Red Arrow Highway near 62nd Street in Hartford Township.

For an unknown reason, the 61-year-old South Haven man, who was heading westbound, went across the median into the eastbound lane, lost control of his car, and rolled about five times into a field.

Police found the driver next to the car.

The driver said he was not wearing a seat belt, but he was able to crawl out of the car.

He was brought to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
