Tree falls on motorist

A Marcellus resident was injured when a tree fell on his car during a storm earlier this week in Cass County’s Marcellus Township.

Sheriff Richard Behnke said the incident occurred at 10:25 p.m. Tuesday on Hemlock Lake Road, near the intersection of Taylor Drive.

Deputies said a car driven by 56-year-old James Joseph Hokauson was struck by the fallen tree. Hokauson was transported to Bronson Lakeview Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Hokauson was wearing his seatbelt and alcohol was not a factor, authorities said.
