CROCKERY TWP. — A Muskegon County man was trapped in his car after it rolled over Thursday on I-96 in Ottawa County.

Police were dispatched to the single-car crash on westbound I-96 at 4:42 p.m. 

The preliminary investigation at the scene showed that a 49-year-old Twin Lake man was driving his Chevrolet Cobalt on the interstate when he lost control of the car between the 5- and 6-mile markers in Crockery Township. The Cobalt left the shoulder side of the roadway and rolled over several times before coming to rest in the trees.

The driver was unable to get out of the car without the assistance of Crockery Township firefighters, at which time he was transported to Hackley Hospital in Muskegon by a North Ottawa Community Hospital ambulance. He was in stable condition, said Sgt. Chris Dill of the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office.

Multiple witnesses reported to Ottawa County Central Dispatch that the driver was operating in an aggressive manner prior to the crash, Dill said.

The incident remains under investigation by the Sheriff's Office.
