Original calls for help indicated the crash involved five cars.
Charles Sayer, 70, was in good condition following the crash, according to Ottawa County Sheriff’s deputies.
Sayer was traveling west in a 1996 Toyota at about 9:40 p.m., when his vehicle was struck by a 2007 Cadillac driven by Jaime Knudson, 28, of North Muskegon. Knudson was not injured.
Police said Knudson was reaching down to grab his cellphone, looked up and it was too late to avoid a crash. He was also traveling west.
Kudson was ticketed for failure to stop in an assured clear distance ahead.
