This Montcalm County Sheriff vehicle was struck by another vehicle while parked alongside US131.

The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office is advising motorists to slow down on slippery roads after a vehicle ran into one of their cruisers at the scene of an accident.

While investigating a traffic crash on US131 near the Kendaville Road overpass on Saturday, November 21, a Montcalm County Sheriff’s cruiser was struck. The crash occurred at approximately 9:52 p.m.

The deputy had his cruiser parked along the road edge with the emergency lights activated, while policing the initial crash. A northbound Ford F250 lost control and crashed into the cruiser. The cruiser was unoccupied at the time and there were no injuries.

The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office reminds drivers that winter driving season is upon us all. “Drivers are required to slow down and drive more cautiously during inclement weather to avoid being involved in a crash,” said Undersheriff Michael J. Williams. “Slowing down, leaving more space between vehicles, leaving for one’s destination earlier, and keeping one’s vehicle windows clear of frost are some suggestions to drivers to help make trips safer. Road conditions can also change without warning and drivers need to be able to react accordingly.”
