Kalamazoo, MI: On Sunday, November 27, 2016 at approximately 8:14 PM, Kalamazoo Public Safety officers responded to a report of a single car accident on S. Park Street near W. Maple Street. Upon arrival, officers found a vehicle that had crashed into a tree. A 37 year old male victim was found inside the vehicle. Officers removed the victim from the vehicle and immediately started life saving efforts. The 37 year old Kalamazoo man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The preliminary investigation shows that the vehicle was traveling north bound on S. Park near Crane Park when it left the roadway to the west, and onto the median, striking a tree. It appears that speed may have been a factor. The deceased man was identified as Joshua Andersen Locke of Kalamazoo, Michigan. The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety offers our deepest sympathy and condolences to the family.
