IONIA, Mich. (WZZM) - A Good Samaritan was hurt while trying to help a man who was just in a car crash.

It all happened around 10:30 Tuesday night when a little bit of snow was rolling in. Ionia police tell us it began with one car being sideswiped by a pick-up near the correctional facility on West Bluewater Highway. The car slid into a ditch hitting some bushes, while the pick-up drove away.

That's when the Good Samaritan stopped to help this man. He parked on the shoulder, started walking across the street toward him, but then he got clipped by the side of another car. Both men are doing fine, they just needed to be treated for some minor injuries at the hospital.

The highway was closed for about an hour after the two accidents for clean-up.
