Victim dies in Alger crash

MUNISING – A Shingleton man died Wednesday morning in a fiery single-vehicle crash in Alger County.

The accident occurred at about 2:40 a.m. on Alger County Road H-15, which runs north from M-28 about 10 miles east of Munising.

Michigan State Police troopers from the Negaunee post responded to the scene of the crash and found a 1999 Chevy Cavalier fully engulfed in flames.

After extinguishing the fire, troopers discovered a lone deceased occupant.

Police said this morning that the cause of the crash is unknown, but speed is believed to have been a factor.

Police withheld identification of the deceased man pending further investigation; however, a death notice submitted to the Mining?journal from Bowerman Funeral home of Munising identified him as Allen Jordan Miron, 19, of Shingleton.

MSP troopers were assisted at the scene by Alger County EMS, the Alger County Sheriffs Department, the Munising City Police Department and the Munising Township Fire Department.
