Fried veggies with chaser


A semi-trailer loaded with vegetables bound for Grand Rapids was destroyed by fire on northbound I-196 near the 109th Avenue exit May 8. South Haven Area Emergency Service units responding to the 11:45 a.m. call found the driver had disconnected his trailer, engulfed with flames when they arrived, after pulling onto the shoulder. It and its load were destroyed. Northbound traffic there was snarled for hours. A second accident on that stretch that day at 4:40 p.m. saw a driver escape serious injury after his SUV struck the rear of a moving semi and ended up against a guardrail between North Shore Drive and 109th Avenue.
