SUBJECT OF RELEASE: Personal Injury Accident
DATE AND TIME: Friday, February 20, 2015 at 2:06 p.m.
LOCATION: North Greenville Road (M-91) south of Stanton Road, Pine Township

Montcalm County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a two vehicle personal injury crash Friday, February 20, 2015 at 2:06 p.m. Initial investigation reveals a 60 year old Trufant man was driving a 2003 Dodge Ram 4 door pickup northbound on North Greenville (M-91) and while entering a curve south of Langston a southbound 1997 Mercury Mountaineer operated by a 52 year old Stanton man crossed the centerline and into the northbound traffic lane.

A witness reports that the Mercury Mountaineer was being operated erratically and at a high rate of speed, therefore, failing to negotiate the curve. The southbound Mercury struck the 2003 Dodge Ram head on. The Mountaineer had a gas leak and caught fire which was extinguished by passersby. Both drivers were pinned and had to be extricated from their vehicles.

The driver of the Mercury Mountaineer did not appear to have been wearing a seat belt. A German Shepard in the Dodge Ram was uninjured in the crash and was taken by Animal Control. There were no other occupants in either vehicle.

One of the drivers was transported to United Memorial Hospital and one was transported to Spectrum-Butterworth Campus. The Montcalm County Sheriff’s office continues to investigate this incident.

Montcalm County Sheriff’s deputies were assisted at the scene by Michigan State Police, Lakeview Fire Department, Montcalm Fire Department, Montcalm Emergency Medical Services, and Montcalm County Road Commission.
