PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich.-The driver of a pickup truck that ended up in Versluis Lake says his brakes gave out before the crash.
It happened around 9:55 a.m. Friday in the 5100 block of East Beltline Avenue. The man tells WZZM 13 he was driving down Plainfield Avenue when he realized he couldn't brake. As he sounded his horn for other cars to get out of the way, the driver crossed East Beltine and drove into the lake.
The man jumped out right before the truck hit the water. He's being treated for a broken leg.
