On April 19, 2012 Troopers from the Mount Pleasant State Police Post responded to a traffic crash on US 27 in Vernon Township of Isabella County. The crash occurred South of the City of Clare just before noon when a single vehicle traveling South slid off the roadway and into the median. The vehicle rolled multiple times after departing the roadway and the driver was ejected from the vehicle. The driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.
