On Saturday evening, Deputies from the Mason County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 3 vehicle crash on US10 west of Stiles Road. The crash resulted in one fatality. The name of the deceased has not yet been formally released by the sheriff department. An eastbound 2005 Chevy Impala, crossed the centerline on US-10 and sideswiped a westbound 2017 Chevy Silverado pickup, driven by 61 year old Michael Stacey of Grand Rapids.  The Impala then collided head-on with a trailered sail boat, being pulled by 58 year old Donald Nelson of Whitehall.  This brought the sailboat through the windshield of the Impala, killing the driver instantly.  It is unclear at this time if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash. All parties were wearing their seatbelt. The incident remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office.
