A 23-year-old Van Buren County man died in a deadly crash last October.

Now, his family has learned who may have been involved.

Police arrested Seth Jones, 24, of Lawton in connection with the death of Dakota Kearns.

On Oct.18, Kearns was dropped off at a Kalamazoo hospital and the hospital staff was told Kearns had fallen down a flight of stairs.

After investigating, police learned Jones and Kearns were attempting to steal street signs.

Kearns was reportedly riding on top of Jones' vehicle when he tried to steal the signs and fell off and hit his head.

Jones turned himself into police this week.

He faces several charges, including reckless driving, causing death.
