Crash splits car in half


A driver ran off the road in Solon Township last week Wednesday and struck a tree so hard that it split the car into two pieces.

According to Solon Fire Chief Jeff Drake, the accident occurred about 4 a.m. March 29, in the 17600 block of Albrecht, which is north of 21 Mile Road.

“This car was literally split in half behind the fire wall/dashboard, as a result of the impact, on the passenger side, with the massive tree,” remarked Drake. He noted that the remaining passenger compartment flipped over, and rested upside down.

N-Crash2Sgt. Corey Luce, with the Kent County Sheriff Department, identified the driver as Brett Jarrett Lanakila Slocum, 33 of Pierson. He was reportedly driving southbound at the time of the crash.

Both Luce and Drake confirmed that the driver was severely injured, but refused treatment at the scene. Instead, he was transported to a hospital in Big Rapids by a family member. As of Thursday, April 2, Luce said the driver was still in the hospital.

The crash is still under investigation, and no further information is available at this time.
