SCOTTVILLE — A vehicle crashed into a building and another vehicle in downtown Scottville Friday afternoon, June 11, 2021 sending its four passengers to the hospital. The Kia Spectra was traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound on State Street (US 10), disregarded the red light at the intersection of State and Main streets, struck a commercial tanker truck, drove up onto the sidewalk, went airborne, then struck the building at 143 E. State St., before coming to a stop, according to Scottville Police Chief Matt Murphy.

Murphy said the driver of the vehicle was uncooperative with law enforcement and EMS, refusing to identify herself. She initially refused medical treatment but then rode in the ambulance to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital. Three minors were in the vehicle and sustained various non-life-threatening injuries. All were transported to the hospital.

The driver of the southbound commercial truck said he didn’t realize he had been hit, initially. He was uninjured. The crash caused State Street to be closed.

Emergency units dispatched to the scene included Scottville Police Department, Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Scottville Fire Department, and Custer Fire Department.

The crash remains under investigation.
