BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

Hewitt Park in Bay City is closed until further notice after a vehicle damaged some playground equipment.

It happened Wednesday morning, at around 8 a.m.

Saginaw Veterans Affairs Police said they saw heavy damage to a 92-year-old Bay City man’s vehicle and called the Bay City Department of Public Safety. That’s when the damage was discovered.

Parks officials said the vehicle compromised the engineering of the play structure, but it’s unclear what that will mean for the future of the structure.

The manufacturer has been called to come out and inspect it.

Tim Botzau, the manager of the Parks and Sanitation Manager, told TV5 that the driver of the vehicle suffered some sort of medical incident, causing the crash.

If you have any questions about the closure, call the Parks Department at (989) 894-8314.
