Drivers are being warned to slow down as police continue to respond to multi-vehicle crashes around the county.

“Even though it’s not 30 below anymore, the roads are still slippery and drivers need to use caution,” said Sgt. Jason Kik of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.

Kik was on his way to the Spring Lake/Ferrysburg branch’s third multi-vehicle crash on the north side of the Grand Haven drawbridge on Thursday.

The latest — a five-vehicle crash — occurred just before 4 p.m. on the northbound lanes. Kik said the northbound lanes were temporarily closed until the vehicles could be removed. 

The last car was still sitting there at around 4:30 p.m.

A report on the scanner at 4:35 p.m. indicated there was a multi-car crash in Muskegon County on U.S. 31 just south of Sherman Boulevard.
