PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — A 24-year-old Ludington man was arrested Saturday afternoon and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol — high blood alcohol content (super drunk) after the man caused a four vehicle crash on US 10 near the Meyers Road intersection.

According to Mason County Sheriff Dep. Jeremy King, the man, who was driving a 2005 Toyota Tundra pickup truck, was eastbound on US 10 when he rear-ended a 2006 Honda CRV SUV driven by a female driver (age not available). The man’s truck then hit a 2007 Buick SUV driven by a 19-year-old Victory Township woman. That crash caused the Buick to rear-end a 2006 Dodge Caravan which was occupied by a Scottville family of four, including parents and two children.

King said non of the people involved in the crash were seriously injured and no one was transported by ambulance, however they all sought medical treatment at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital emergency department.

The eastbound lane of US 10 was closed for over an hour while emergency crews tended to the patients and investigated the crash.

Responding to the scene were Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Pere Marquette Township Fire Department, and Life EMS ambulance.
