PORTAGE-LAKESHORE, Mich. (WOOD) — A Portage Township man has died from injuries he sustained Saturday, following a car crash in downtown Portage and Lake City.

Robert R. Miller, 32, of the 200 block of Woodside Court in Portage, was pronounced dead Saturday morning, according to the Portage County Sheriff’s Department.

The motorist is not currently facing any charges, officials say.
