Scottville man dead following US 10-31 crash.



By Rob Alway, Editor-in-Chief.SCOTTVILLE — A 35-year-old Scottville man is dead following a three vehicle crash in the 700 block of US 10-31 Friday morning. According to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole, the crash occurred when am eastbound full-size 1995 Chevrolet van, driven by 22-year-old man, crossed the centerline of the road and struck the westbound 2011 Kia Optima, driven by the 35-year-old Scottville man, head-on. The van then struck a westbound 2006 Dodge Caravan minivan driven by a 23-year-old Custer man.

Sheriff Cole said the Scottville man died immediately. The man’s 1 1/2-year-old son, who was secured in a carseat in the rear passenger side of the vehicle, sustained a minor scratch, Cole said. The driver of the Chevrolet van was transported by AeroMed ambulance to Munson Medical Center in Traverse City. AeroMed landed on the highway just east of the scene, about 1/4 mile from the Scottville city limits.

The Chevrolet van’s 22-year-old female passenger was transported to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital by ambulance, as were the toddler in the Kia and the driver of the minivan.

The crash occurred about 7:40 a.m. and US 10-31 between the Scottville US 31 bypass and Amber Road remains closed as of 10 a.m.

Sheriff Cole said the sheriff’s office and the Michigan State Police are investigating.

Units on assisting on scene included MCSO, MSP, Scottville Police Department, Ludington Police Department, Scottville Fire Department, Custer Fire Department, Ludington Fire Department, Pere Marquette Township Fire Department, and Life EMS.

Names of the victims involved will be released when all family notifications have been made, Sheriff Cole said.
