State Police Say Cat Causes Multi-Vehicle Crash 6-23-2010

Michigan State police said a multi-vehicle crash was caused by a motorist who came to an abrupt stop to avoid hitting a cat.
The chain-reaction crash occurred Tuesday evening on Wilder Road in Bangor Township.
In all, four vehicles were damaged and the driver who caused the crash sped away, according to a news release.
Police said the “careless actions” of the motorist caused Rachelle Treymann, 34, to suddenly stop her car. Her vehicle was rear ended by a second vehicle driven by a 26-year-old Bay City man.
Treymann’s vehicle was knocked sideways, struck a utility pole support wire and another car before bursting into flames. That vehicle was driven by a 36-year-old Bay City woman.
A fourth vehicle swerved to avoid the collision and struck the roadside cement curb, police said.
No one was seriously injured. The vehicle fire was extinguished by two state troopers.
Police said the driver who caused the crash fled the scene and was not identified.
