An 86 year-old Mt. Pleasant man died Wednesday morning in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of South Shepherd Road and East River Road.

A release from Isabella County Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski said Mitchell Jacque, 86, was traveling south on Shepherd Road in a 2006 Ford 500 and had stopped at the stop sign at East River. Jacque drove into the intersection and was hit broadside by a 2005 Ford F-350 pickup driven by Justin Wheeler, 27, of Mt. Pleasant.

Wheeler was traveling west on River road at the time.

Jacque died in the accident, which was reported at 5:49 a.m.

Mioduszewski reported that there was a heavy rain falling at the time of the crash. He reported that alcohol “did not appear to be a factor in the traffic crash.”

The Isabella County Sheriff’s Department was assisted at the scene by Tribal Police, the Tribal Fire Department, Shepherd Tri-Township Fire Department and Mobile Medical Response Ambulance Service.

The crash remains under investigation.
