Driver flees after crashing into cattle fence.

GREENWOOD TOWNSHIP — A 33-year-old Holton man was cited for failure to report an accident after leaving the scene of a rollover crash early Wednesday morning, March 24, on South 192nd Avenue near East Roosevelt Road, said Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast.

Alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the 5 a.m. crash that resulted in the 2004 Chevrolet Aveo hitting a cattle fence and landing upside down in a cattle enclosure, states the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office accident report.

The driver told the sheriff’s deputy that “something came out of the ditch in front of his vehicle, and he took evasive action to avoid a collision with it.” He lost control of the vehicle; it ran off the road; overturned in the ditch; struck a cattle fence; and came to rest in the cattle enclosure, the report states.
