A 35-year-old Three Rivers man suffered minor injuries after he was involved in a single-vehicle accident over the weekend in Cass County’s Lagrange Township.
Sheriff Joe Underwood said his office responded at 3:10 a.m. Sunday to a personal-injury crash at the intersection of Pokagon Highway and Wilberhill Road.
Demetrius Pritchard was traveling south on Wilberhill in a Pontiac minivan when he fell asleep and failed to stop at the three-way intersection on Pokagon Highway.
Pritchard’s vehicle went airborne, down an embankment, struck a utility pole and rolled his numerous times, coming to rest in a cornfield approximately 300 yards south of the roadway.
Pritchard was able to crawl from the vehicle and call for help. Injuries appeared to be minor, though Pritchard was transported to Dowagiac’s Lee Memorial Hospital for observation.
