CADILLAC — A 34-year-old Cadillac man stood mute recently to several misdemeanor charges for allegedly leaving the scene of a crash and drunken driving.
Scott James Bosack was charged with operating while intoxicated, second offense; failure to stop at the scene of a personal injury crash; operating a motor vehicle while license suspended, revoked or denied; operating a motor vehicle without security; and unlawful use of a license plate, registration or title after an incident on May 19 in Haring Township. If convicted, Bosack faces fines between $200 and $1,000 and five days to one year in jail, with at least 48 hours to be served consecutively, or 30 to 90 hours of community service, or both.
A not-guilty plea will be entered on his behalf.
The charges are merely accusations and not evidence of guilt.
Around 5:30 p.m. May 19, deputies from the Wexford County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to East 34 and South 39 roads on a report of a personal injury traffic crash.
According to the sheriff’s office, a westbound vehicle, described as a purple Mitsubishi Eclipse, lost control and crossed the centerline.
An eastbound vehicle, described as a red Chevrolet Silverado, attempted to avoid the oncoming vehicle but collided with the Eclipse and was forced off the road. The Silverado rolled over and pinned the occupants inside, the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies were told the Eclipse left the scene of the crash and was last seen headed north on Old U.S. 131 near East 30 3/4 Road.
A witness contacted Central Dispatch, reporting a damaged purple vehicle traveling eastbound on East 30 1/2 Road that turned into a private driveway.
Deputies responded to the residence and located the vehicle and Bosack, who was uninjured, and arrested him.
The occupants of the Silverado were transported to Munson Healthcare Cadillac Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
