The Eaton County Sheriff's Office says one man is dead after a three vehicle accident on eastbound I-496 just west of Waverly Road in Delta Township. Police say their preliminary investigation has determined a vehicle being driven by a Delta Township resident rear-ended a box truck that had stopped in the road because of a construction zone backup.

The force of the collision pushed the box truck into another stopped car in front of it. The male driver of the first car was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. The occupants of the other vehicles were not injured.
