Crash Sends Paw Paw Man to Hospital

A 24-year-old from Paw Paw suffered life threatening injuries after crash investigators believe he suffered some sort of medical issue and lost control of his SUV as he approached the Stadium drive bridge over U.S.131. Deputies say the man was headed into Kalamazoo from Van Buren County just after 1:00 Wednesday afternoon when his car suddenly veered across a raised median and the opposite traffic lanes, hit the bridge abutment and his car caught fire. Oshtemo Rescue was able to douse the fire and pry the young man out of the wreck. He was admitted to Bronson Methodist in critical condition. The investigation is continuing.
