REED CITY — Osceola County sheriff Ed Williams said a one-vehicle fatal accident from earlier this week remains under investigation.

Williams reported on Sunday, at 3:59 a.m., his office was dispatched to a one-vehicle accident on northbound US 131 near US-10 highway in Richmond Township.

He said deputies found a white 2017 Ford F150 had went off the road and came to rest against a sign post. Responding personnel and citizens were unsuccessful in their attempt to revive Roger Hibbard, 62 of Central Lake.

Williams said preliminary investigations indicate Hibbard suffered a medical incident while driving. This investigation is ongoing and a direct cause of death has not been determined, however, neither alcohol nor speed is believed to be a factor, Williams added.

He extended his thanks to the citizens who stopped to help, the Osceola County EMS and the Reed City Fire Department.
