According to the St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department, Michael Matthew was driving east on M-60, near Marlene Drive, when he lost control of the vehicle.

The Three Rivers Police Department was called over the weekend to a residence in the 700 block of Portage Avenue regarding a domestic situation.

Officers coaxed the man out of his house and he told police he was upset over an argument with his family earlier in the evening. Officers eventually convinced him to seek a medical evaluation at Three Rivers Health.
Nobody was hurt during the incident.
Assistance was provided by the St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department, the Three Rivers Fire Department and Michigan State Police.
