Arcadia Township man killed in ATV crash

(LAPEER COUNTY) -- A 52-year old Arcadia Township man was killed after being thrown from his ATV Sunday at his residence on Lum Road. Lapeer County Sheriff's deputies say the victim, Michael Pitt, was found by a friend Monday afternoon. An investigation showed that Pitt was driving the Honda 4-wheeler on his property in an oval. According to deputies, the ATV slid sideways when rounding each of the curves when it overturned, ejecting Pitt. The ATV came to rest on all four tires. Pitt, who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, was found nearby and pronounced dead at the scene. It is unknown if alcohol was a factor. The case remains under investigation.
