Police are trying to determine how the accident actually happened, as Hicks does not recall it and the other driver’s account conflicts with a witness account, Spring Lake/Ferrysburg Police Officer Michael Williams said.
The other vehicle, a 2006 Chevy pickup truck, was driven by a 47-year-old Ludington man. Williams said they would not release his name at this time.
Traffic was backed up while the accident was being policed, although one lane was kept open.
Police are seeking more information and are asking any witnesses to the accident to call the Spring Lake-Ferrysburg Police Department at 842-1889 (after hours, you can leave a message at ext. 1410).
