GENEVA TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- This is not the time of the year that you want bald tires on your vehicle.
Van Buren County Sheriffs Deputies say that was the condition of the wheels on a 1996 GMC Yukon that lost its grip on the roadway early Sunday afternoon on 62nd Street in Geneva Township, slid over the centerline and struck a 1993 Dodge Dakota head on.
The at-fault driver, a 42-year-old man from Bangor suffered minor hand injuries and was treated at the scene. He was cited for driving too fast for conditions, and warned about the bald tires.
The driver of the Dodge, a 52-year-old man from the Lacota area, suffered a fractured leg and was transported to South Haven Hospital Emergency for treatment.
