A teenager has been killed in western Michigan in a multi-vehicle crash that’s being blamed on a driver who was distracted by a sandwich and his GPS device.
The Ottawa County sheriff’s office says the victim is 13-year-old David Talsma of Hudsonville.
He was in a Toyota van driven by a 16-year-old when the vehicle was struck Monday by a Chevrolet pickup truck on Interstate 196 in Georgetown Township.
The 40-year-old pickup driver from Crown Point, Indiana, told deputies that he was eating a sandwich and looking at a GPS device. He apparently didn’t realize that traffic was slowing down for a construction zone.
Three more cars were involved in the crash. (AP)
