Members of the Holland City Council and some parade spectators jumped into action Saturday as the 1947 Hudson Super Eight owned by Gordon Cunningham malfunctioned while in motion down the hill on Eighth Street in front of the Ottawa County Courthouse. Cunningham — who was once the attorney for the city of Holland — realized he had no control and started honking the horn.
Spectators quickly jumped to their feet, as it was obvious the driver of the car had lost control and was trying to get the attention of those in front of him. Several men and women jumped up and began chasing the car down. Those who helped stop it pushed into a small parking lot off Eighth Street.
The Holland City Council members who helped stopped the car said no one was hurt and everyone managed to get out of the way safely.
