One of those was a rollover crash off northbound U.S. 31 just south of Fillmore Street at about 3:30 p.m. Monday.
A Wisconsin man, who declined to be identified, said he traveled with traffic at about 45 mph when he went into a ditch.
“I was driving in my lane. I was sideways in my lane, then I was going slow down the hill,” he said.
The man was not injured.
He stood alongside the road with a deputy while a tow truck operator pulled the damaged car from the ditch.
Deputy Mark Busse observed the vehicle was yet another SUV.
“People seem to have a false sense of security when it comes to driving one of those,” Busse said.
He said there were a lot of slide-offs along U.S. 31, noted that he policed several incidents throughout the county.
Earlier in the day, a semi-truck pushed a car off the road in Grand Haven.
Whiteout conditions existed when Gary Ziegler of Rockford said the semi moved over, caught the back of his car and pushed him into a snow bank on the northeast corner of U.S. 31 and Jackson Street at about 10:30 a.m.
Ziegler was uninjured, and the vehicles were quickly removed from the scene.
Capt. Lee Hoeksma of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department advised motorists to stay off of the roads if possible, and only travel as needed.
