Crash kills Florida man

A Florida man died last week after the car he was riding in ran a stop sign in Reynolds Township and was struck by another vehicle.

Montcalm County Deputies reported that the crash occurred at the intersection of North Federal Road and West Almy Road at approximately 5:02 p.m. on Friday, September 24, 2021.

Police said that their investigation revealed that a 2021 Chevy Equinox was westbound on West Almy Road when the driver failed to stop at the stop sign at North Federal Road.  A 1992 Chevy Silverado was northbound on North Federal Road and struck the Equinox in the intersection.

 All persons in the crash were transported to Spectrum Hospital-Butterworth campus for treatment.  The driver of the Silverado, a 73-year-old man from Morley, and the driver of the Equinox, a 52-year-old man from Winter Park, Florida, were both transported via Montcalm County Emergency Medical Services with non-life threatening injuries.  

The front seat passenger of the Equinox, a 72-year-old man from Winter Park, Florida, was airlifted by Aeromed.  On September 25, the Sheriff’s Office was notified that the passenger died as a result of the injuries sustained in the crash.

Seatbelts appeared to have been used by all occupants involved. Alcohol is believed to be a factor.  The crash remains under investigation.

 In addition to the Montcalm County Emergency Medical Services, the Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Howard City Fire Department, Montcalm County Road Commission, and the Michigan State Police.
