WALKER, Mich. (WOOD) — A driver was seriously hurt Monday morning when a rock fell out of a passing trailer and hit him, causing him to crash, Walker police say.
It happened around 8:50 a.m. in the 2200 block of Turner Avenue, south of West River Drive in Walker.
The Walker Police Department says the rock, which is about 8 inches by 7 inches and weighs about 11 pounds, fell off of a dump trailer being hauled by a southbound semi-truck.
The rock crashed through the windshield of a northbound vehicle, striking the driver in the head. That caused him to crash into a power pole, snapping it in half.
The driver, a 48-year-old Grand Rapids man, was rushed to a Grand Rapids hospital in very serious condition.
