Adrian man killed in crash of his tractor-trailer rig

ADRIAN - A 24-year-old Adrian man was killed when he lost control of his tractor-trailer rig and crashed on M-34 near Cadmus Road.

Matthew Fast was pronounced dead Monday at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center soon after the 2:50 p.m. accident, which closed M-34 for more than eight hours. Lenawee County sheriff's deputies said Mr. Fast's truck rounded a curve apparently at a high speed. Mr. Fast lost control of the truck, hit a tree, and flipped, spilling its load of steel.

Police reopened the road for traffic at midnight.
