FREEDOM TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say speed likely was a factor in a crash that left a vehicle overturned in a pond in rural southeastern Michigan with a man’s body inside.

The Ann Arbor News reports the body of 49-year-old Thomas Suter of Ann Arbor was recovered from the vehicle on Monday in Washtenaw County’s Freedom Township, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) southwest of Ann Arbor.

The sheriff’s department says a passerby had spotted the vehicle, and investigators say it likely went through a dead end, through some brush and into the pond. Investigators believe the vehicle went into the pond within a day before it was found.
