LUDINGTON — Mason County Central Middle School teacher Scott Dumas is reported as being in stable condition at Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids. The 50-year-old Amber Township resident was walking through the Shop-N-Save parking lot in Pere Marquette Township Wednesday when he was struck by a vehicle driven by an alleged drunk driver.

Dumas was eventually transported by helicopter to a Grand Rapids hospital. He suffered head and leg wounds.

The family is reporting that another CT scan was performed this morning which showed that nothing had changed, meaning the injuries are stabilized in the head right now.

Due to the stability of that, doctors feel comfortable operating on his broken leg.

The hit and run occurred at 4 p.m. Witnesses reported a gold colored Buick 4-door car was involved. Within 40 minutes, law enforcement officers from Mason County Sheriff’s Office and Ludington Police Department arrested a man in the 600 block of North Delia Street.

The driver was arrested by LPD on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and possession of marijuana.  Deputies will be seeking additional charges this morning through the Mason County Prosecutor’s Office related to the traffic crash.
