The crash happened around 5 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Mt. Olivet Road and Riverview Drive, according to the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety. Police say a 46-year-old man ran a stop sign, colliding with another vehicle driven by a 35-year-old woman. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage.

When officers arrived, the man was unconscious. Police said alcohol and drugs appear to have been a factor.

A 3-year-old in the woman’s car did not seem to be hurt, police said.
