Crash near Dowagiac sends mom, son to hospital

Southwest Michigan

POKAGON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — The Cass County Sheriff’s Office was called to a single car crash south of Dowagiac early Sunday.

Deputies arrived on M-51 near Crystal Springs Street in Pokagon Township around 1:30 a.m. to find a car rolled over off of the side of the road. They say the driver, 34-year-old Nicole Brant of Niles, was driving south when she lost control.

Her 9-year-old son was thrown from the car in the crash and airlifted to South Bend Memorial Hospital.

Brant was pinned in the vehicle and needed to be freed before she was also taken to the hospital.

Deputies believe neither were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
