Sheriff Richard J. Behnke reports that at approximately 12:08 a.m. Thursday, his office was called to investigate a personal injury crash near the intersection of Barron Lake Road and White Street in Howard Township.  

Investigation shows that 30-year-old Niles resident Casey Schramm was traveling northbound on Barron Lake Road when he left the roadway and struck a Telephone Pole. Schramm then continued off the roadway, struck a tree causing his vehicle to come to a rest alongside the roadway.
