The accident took place Thursday night on 10th Street near 110th Avenue in Gun Plain Township north of Plainwell, said the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office. The first call to Allegan Central Dispatch came around 9:30 p.m.
The story that unfolded begins with a disabled vehicle with a flatbed trailer on the side of the road on 10th Street. Two people were working on the breakdown.
