York Township, Mich. -

A 21-year-old Milan man was trapped in his car and died Monday night after hitting the back of a semi-truck on NB US-23 near Willis Road in York Township.

Samuel Fital was pronounced dead on the scene. He was alone in his car and wearing a seat belt when the accident happened. 

The semi-truck Fital hit was stopped in traffic on the freeway due to an earlier accident near Michigan Avenue.

Speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash. The 34-year-old Chicago man driving the semi truck was not injured.

The accident is under investigation by Michigan State Police.
