GRAND BLANC TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJRT) - Police say a Flint Township man suffered life-threatening injuries after crashing a pickup truck an the I-75 exit ramp to Holly Road in Grand Blanc Township.

Just after midnight Saturday, the 26-year-old driver was heading north on I-75 when he got off the freeway. He lost control of his 2005 Chevrolet pickup truck, which left the pavement and rolled several times, according to the Grand Blanc Township Police Department.

The Flint Township man was thrown out of the truck while it overturned. An ambulance rushed him to Ascension Genesys Hospital near the interchange for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

The driver was treated over the weekend and released from the hospital, police said on Monday.
