Calhoun County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to an accident at the intersection of Dickman and Helmer roads, at around 2:50 PM Thursday afternoon.

Investigation of the accident shows that a vehicle had disregarded a red light and drove into the driver’s side of a semi that was traveling through the intersection.

The 59 year-old Battle Creek man, who was driving the vehicle, was taken to Bronson Battle Creek. It appears that prescription medication could be a contributing factor in the accident.
