The Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office, Stanley Police Department, Boyd Fire Department and Boyd Ambulance were the agencies to respond to the crash.

According to the sheriff’s department:

On the above date and time the Sheriff’s office received a report of a one-vehicle crash with injuries. Upon the arrival of first responders the operator/lone occupant was pronounced deceased at the scene. Based upon the initial investigation it appears that the vehicle was traveling westbound when the operator of the vehicle lost control and entered the north ditch. The vehicle continued through the ditch striking a tree causing severe damage to the vehicle and life ending injuries to the operator. Speed is also believed to be a factor in this crash.
