Holland Twp. man arrested for fleeing accident

A 26-year-old Holland Township man is in custody after allegedly hitting a telephone pole in Holland Township on Sunday morning and fleeing the scene of the accident, leaving his passenger behind, police said. The driver hit a pole at the corner of Brookdale and Briarwood drives at 2:51 a.m., said Ottawa County Sheriff's Sgt. Keith Garvelink. A 28-year-old Holland Township woman was in the front passenger seat, Garvelink said, and declined medical treatment for her injuries. The accident brought down the telephone pole, knocking out power in the area.

Gotta wonder if there was drinking involved here... What do you think?
