(PORTER TOWNSHIP) – A Hudson, Indiana man was injured in a weekend crash in Cass County, Michigan.

The Cass County Sheriff's Department was dispatched to a personal injury crash at 1:20 AM Saturday. Deputies say 34 year old Joshua Austin was driving south in the 69,000 block of South River Road when he failed to negotiate a curve. Austin's vehicle left the roadway, striking a tree and a chain link fence.

Austin suffered a head injury and was taken to Elkhart General Hospital. Deputies say Austin was not wearing his seatbelt and alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash, which is still under investigation.

Assisting at the scene were the Porter Fire Department and the Porter Township Ambulance.
