The 25-year-old man was driving south on U.S. 131 when he left the freeway at 142nd Avenue in Dorr Township in Allegan County. The man’s black Chevrolet Impala left the road, drove up the embankment, went airborne, and hit a road sign before landing on the other side of the bridge, police said. The Tire tracks start near the exit ramp and go up the embankment and the car can be seen on its side on the other side of the bridge.
