ROBINSON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (May 24, 2014)- A Jeep Wrangler rolled multiple times, striking four vehicles in the parking lot of the Embassy Bar and Grill after colliding with another vehicle Friday night.

According to the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department, 26-year-old James Velthuis was travelling eastbound on Lake Michigan Drive when a Chevy Sonic driven by, 22-year-old Nathaniel Prause heading westbound turned left on to 104th Avenue and struck the Jeep.

The Jeep then rolled several times and hit four parked vehicles that were at the Embassy Bar and Grill.

Mr. Velhuis was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, while Mr. Prause was treated at the scene and released.

Both drivers were wearing their seat belts and Ottawa County Deputies believe that alcohol was not a factor in this crash.

Mr. Prause was cited for failing to yield.
