Driver Escapes Serious Injury, Camper Destroyed In Van Buren County Crash

The driver of a pickup that was involved in a crash on I-196 in Van Buren County Tuesday night escaped serious injury, although the camper he was towing was totally destroyed. South Haven Area Emergency Services says it responded to the scene at the M-140 exit around 8:45 p.m. Responders arrived to find debris strewn along the highway for about a quarter mile. They learned the northbound driver had lost control just before the M-140 overpass and his vehicle crashed. The camper skidded along the concrete bridge supports and traveled several hundred feet. The driver was taken to Bronson-South Haven Hospital. The crash remains under investigation.
