BERLIN TWP. — A single car accident in the early hours of Sunday (Dec. 30) took the life of a 2005 Capac High School graduate.
Donald Hunsucker Jr., 20, of Berlin Twp. died from his injuries following the 3:25 a.m. incident on Capac Rd.
According to the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department, Hunsucker was southbound when he ran off the west edge of the road, south of Burt Rd. It appears that when the vehicle re-entered the pavement, Hunsucker lost control, slid across the road and went into an adjacent field and ditch. His vehicle struck a tree on the driver's side door, just north of Sharrard Rd.
The investigation is ongoing but alcohol does not appear to be a factor. Hunsucker was not wearing his seat belt.
