Driver distracted by pet, causes accident

A driver that was distracted by his dog struck a vehicle at 17 Mile and White Creek Sunday, causing the other vehicle to roll.
According to Cedar Springs Officer Chad Potts and Chief Roger Parent, the accident occurred Sunday, September 5, at 2:42 p.m. The driver of a tan Buick was westbound on 17 Mile, when he was distracted by his dog and lost his footing, causing him to pull too far into the intersection at a red light at White Creek and strike a northbound White Nissan. “He hit her on the passenger side, and she rolled up the front of his bumper and rolled about 65 feet,” explained Officer Potts.
The woman suffered a minor injury to her hand, and sought treatment on her own. The other driver was not injured.
