The truck hit a solar-powered construction board and a fence line before splashing into the Clinton River and rolling upside down, trapping the two occupants.

The 22-year-old passenger from Waterford was rescued and is okay. The 20-year-old driver from Milford was taken to a local hospital where he died.

Investigators are now trying to determine if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
