CUTLERVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) – A snowplow truck, driven by a private contractor, hit a pedestrian who was walking in a Kent County road.
The victim, in his 20s, was talking and responding to rescue personnel when he was transported to a hospital. His condition is stable.
He was walking south on Division Avenue, south of 68th Street, in Cutlerville when the accident occurred around 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Cutlerville Fire Capt. Carl Gunderson told 24 Hour News 8 that investigators think the blade of the truck hit the victim, and pushed him up against a snowbank, and then the victim rolled under the truck.
The victim was en route to work and about two miles from his destination. He was wearing dark-colored clothes, and walking in the street instead of the snow-covered sidewalk.
The snowplow driver was on its way home from work at the time.
