Walter Weldon’s 2003 Ford Explorer was rear-ended at 1:10 p.m. Thursday while stopped in backed-up traffic just past the intersection of Savage Street and Fruitport Road, according to Spring Lake/Ferrysburg police. The driver who hit Weldon’s SUV then turned north onto Fruitport Road and drove away. A witness followed the other driver, but eventually lost track of the four-door white or gold vehicle.

Weldon was treated at the scene by North Ottawa Community Hospital paramedics, police said. Spring Lake Township firefighters also responded to the accident, according to a Fire Department employee.
