STURGIS, MI (WTVB) - St. Joseph County Deputies are waiting on autopsy results to identify a suspected car thief who died in a fiery wreck over the weekend. They think he stole a 12-year-old car in Sturgis and headed south east. The end came on Lutz Road in Constantine Township, about 15 miles from the spot where the theft took place early Sunday morning.
Deputies say the driver was speeding, lost control, went off the west side of the road, bounced off two trees, came to rest back on the pavement and burst into flames. The driver couldn’t be rescued and was dead at the scene. It may take dental records to identify the man.
