Driver severely injured after crash in Walker

WALKER, MICH. - Walker Police believe a driver may have suffered a medical condition before a crash early Friday, Nov. 4. It happened just before 1 a.m. at the roundabout of Wilson Avenue NW and Remembrance Road NW in Walker.

911 dispatchers were called about a car on fire with someone trapped inside. When officers arrived on scene, they found the PT Cruiser overturned in the road. The fire was put out with an extinguisher and the 47-year-old Kentwood man was extricated by Walker Fire Department.

He was then taken to the hospital with potentially life threatening injuries.

According to a release from Walker Police, the car was headed north on Wilson, when it drove across the west side of the roundabout, across several curbs.

Police say the driver took out at least 4 signs over more than 100 yards and also damaged a light pole. WZZM 13's crew on the scene saw debris scattered around 50 yards from the car.

Part of the roundabout was shut down as emergency crews worked to clean up the crash.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor. The driver was wearing a seatbelt.
