HAMLIN TOWNSHIP — An 18-year-old Ludington woman was injured after she attempted to swerve her vehicle to miss a deer Tuesday afternoon. The Chrysler Town and Country minivan was traveling west on Fisher Road, just east of Jebavy Drive about 3:50 p.m. The vehicle ended up in a ditch on the south side of the road and the driver was initially reported unresponsive. Passersby Steve Glamzi said he and his co-workers were driving by and saw the van in the ditch. Initially they did not notice the driver, who was slouched over the steering wheel. Glamzi said the vehicle’s front-wheel-drive wheels were still spinning in the ditch.

Sheriff Dep. John Bolowski said the driver eventually regained consciousness and was then transported to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital by ambulance.

The crash was the sixth crash in the county Tuesday, three of them — each single vehicle crashes — resulting in injuries.

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