Truck Catches Fire After Montcalm County Driver Crashes into Trees

 A Montcalm County man was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after crashing into trees in Winfield Township Thursday night. 

The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office says around 9:30 p.m. a Coral man did not stop at a stop sign at N. Masters Road while traveling on W. Church Road and crashed into trees. 

The man was pinned inside his pickup truck which caught fire, but passersby stopped to help get him out. Once out, the fire spread, engulfing the truck. 

The Coral man was taken to the hospital with injuries to his face, chest and leg. 

The Sheriff’s Office believes alcohol is a factor, but they are still investigating.
