WALHALLA — A Lake County man was seriously injured following a single vehicle crash on US 10 Wednesday afternoon. According to deputies on scene, the man was traveling east on US 10 and entered the curve through Walhalla past Wever Road. The Mazda Tribute he was driving then left the roadway, struck a road sign and went into the woods, striking several trees. Extrication equipment from Custer Fire Department was used to open the door of the vehicle, according to Branch Township Fire Chief Steve McVicker. First responders from Branch Fire Department were also dispatched.

The man was transported to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital by Life EMS ambulance and then was expected to be flown to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids. Initially, emergency medical technicians on scene were going to have AeroMed helicopter come directly to the scene. However, a possible storm diverted the helicopter to Ludington hospital.

The man’s age and town of residence was not immediately available.

Deputies from Mason County Sheriff’s Office were investigating the crash. Sheriff Kim Cole said deputies had received a complaint of a reckless driver in that area moments before the crash.
