VICTORY TOWNSHIP — A motorist suffering a medical emergency on US 31 near the Manistee/Mason County line nearly struck several vehicles and reached speeds over 100 mph Thanksgiving evening, Nov. 26, around 8:30 p.m., said Mason County Kim Cole

Mason County sheriff’s deputies were notified of a “Be On The Lookout” for a reported intoxicated driver running vehicles off the road southbound on US 31, said Sheriff Cole. A deputy in the area located the vehicle, clocking it on the radar at 85 mph.

“As the deputy attempted a traffic stop, the vehicle’s speed reached over 100 mph and had crossed the centerline numerous times nearly striking several vehicles,” he said. “The vehicle finally stopped on US 31 near Beyer Rd, and it was determined the driver had been experiencing a medical emergency and was not intoxicated. He was treated by medical personnel and turned over to family members.”
