(9-14-20) Cass County Sheriff Richard J. Behnke reports his office investigated a single vehicle crash this morning at around 7:13 am.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Redfield Rd. and Gumwood St. in Milton Township. The initial investigation of the crash showed that a vehicle driven by Matthew Cates (17) of Stevensville, failed to stop for the stop sign due to the fog and struck a tree.

Cates sustained minor injuries and was transported by SMCAS to South Bend Memorial Hospital for treatment of his injuries. Cates was wearing a seat-belt and alcohol was not a factor.

Assisting on scene were SMCAS and Cass County Sheriff’s office.

This case remains under investigation.
