HILLMAN (WWJ/AP) – Authorities say a 55-year-old man has died following a rollover crash at an annual street drag racing event in the northern Lower Peninsula.

The Montmorency County sheriff’s department says in a statement that the man from the Oscoda County community of Mio died of injuries following the Sunday afternoon crash at the Hillman Street Drags. He was driving a 1981 Chevrolet during the race in Hillman.

The Alpena News reports that a power pole also was sheared during the crash. The man’s name wasn’t being released Tuesday morning.

The Hillman Street Drags are held every year in July on a 1/8 mile paved street in downtown Hillman, about 30 miles west of Alpena.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
