Montcalm County crashes

The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office policed one fatal and two additional serious crashes over the weekend (February 5-6).

Apple watch leads police to fatal crash

The fatal crash was initially reported as an open 911 line, and a short time later, the dispatch center received a notification of a “hard fall” from an Apple watch.  The notifications gave an approximate location of Pakes and Johnson Roads in Montcalm Township. While searching the area, a pickup truck was found crashed into a large tree.  A 24-year-old man from Gowen was pronounced dead at the scene.  Alcohol use and failure to wear a seat belt are believed to be contributing factors.  This crash occurred at approximately 1:44 a.m. on February 5, 2022.

The man continued north at the T intersection and struck a tree. The man was transported to Sparrow Main Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  Alcohol use and failure to wear a seat belt are believed to be contributing factors.
