CHARLEVOIX — A Bay City man died in a Charlevoix County traffic crash.

Shane Cianek, 35, was a passenger Sunday in a vehicle driven by Jason Fritz, 35, of Macomb Township, police said.

Fritz lost control of his vehicle on the gravel shoulder of M-66 near LaCroix Road in South Arm Township at about 2:30 p.m., police said. He came back onto the road and rolled the vehicle several times, ejecting Cianek.

Fritz left the scene on foot, but later was apprehended by an East Jordan police officer. Cianek was taken to the hospital, where he died.

Cianek wasn't wearing a seat belt, police said. Drug and alcohol tests are pending, and the crash remains under investigation.
