At around 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 6, a driver was distracted at the wheel and crashed into a ditch, said David Peruski, chief of the Bad Axe Area Fire Department. The vehicle was damaged, but the driver walked away unharmed.

“Next thing you know she was down in the ditch with the cattails,” Peruski said. “But at least she wasn’t hurt.”

The fire department was on scene for a half hour, blocking-off traffic as the vehicle was pulled from the ditch.
