Caledonia man causes 3 vehicle accident, pedestrian hit from chain reaction
GRAND HAVEN, Mich. —
One person was transported to a local hospital after a Caledonia man had a medical emergency while driving, causing a multi-vehicle wreck in Grand Haven, according to Grand Haven Department of Public Safety.
The 48-year-old Caledonia man was driving west on Jackson when he suffered from an unidentified medical emergency, causing him to rear end the vehicle driven by a 48-year-old man from Ludington. The Caledonia man continued onto Harbor Drive, rear ending yet another vehicle driven by a 61-year-old Grand Haven woman.
The woman, reacting to the crash, drove off the road and struck a 70-year-old West Olive woman, who was walking on the sidewalk. The Caledonia man followed by striking an electric pole, which broke in half, and coming to a stop at the opposite side of the road.
The scene was roped off due to live electrical wires. North Ottawa Community Hospital was also called to the scene to treat the multiple patients on scene.
The Caledonia man refused medical treatment, but will be referred to the Secretary of State for an evaluation on his driver's license. Both the Grand Haven woman and West Olive woman were transported to local hospitals for a broken arm and head laceration, respectively. The Ludington man refused medical treatment on scene.
