According to the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office, a Schoolcraft Police officer saw a vehicle driving carelessly in the village limits and attempted to follow the car. However, they were unable to catch up to the vehicle due to high speeds.  A short time later, officials say that officer came up on the crash scene, which involved the same vehicle in question.
