Chopper captures arrest of Montcalm Co. crash suspect

Montcalm County

EVERGREEN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Video from a Michigan State Police helicopter shows the moment a crash suspect was caught by authorities in Montcalm County.

It started when a drover crashed his or her car at the corner of Stanton and Cedar lake roads, east of Stanton in Evergreen Township Thursday night.

The crash sparked a gas leak that forced many families out of their homes while the leak was repaired. An evacution order has since been lifted.

Friday, MSP tweeted out infrared chopper video that shows the search for the suspect, involving troopers from MSP’s Lakeview post.

24 Hour News 8 is working to learn the name of the suspect and the charges he or she may face.
