A tan 2013 Chevrolet Equinox driven by Jack Bartholomew, age 58, of Saranac, was stopped behind Harrell. King was distracted and did not realize traffic was stopped in front of her. She swerved to the right, leaving the roadway in an attempt to avoid a collision. King continued northbound and re-entered the way, striking the front of Bartholomew’s vehicle and the rear of Harrell’s vehicle. King then continued into the southbound lane, where she was struck by a white 2012 GMC Sierra driven by Donald Carlton, age 54, from Ionia.
