BLOOMER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - Corn stalks propped up a vehicle and prevented it from crushing a young boy who was ejected after a rollover accident, police said.
The 7-year-old was not wearing a seat belt, police said. He was conscious when rescue personnel arrived at the scene, and taken to a hospital. He was later treated and released.
The driver lost control of the vehicle on an icy Blackmer Road near S. County Line Road in Bloomer Township around 8 a.m. Monday. The vehicle then went into a nearby corn field. The vehicle ended on top of some corn stalks, which prevented the vehicle from landing on the child.
Four kids and two adults were in the vehicle. The 7-year-old was the only injured occupant.
