Accident report
15 May 1985: Pickup Crash Near Martin Claims One

MARTIN -- Donald R. Hall, 56, of Martin, was killed early this morning and Tim Kolhoff, 28, of Martin, was injured when their pickup truck left 12th Street west of here and crashed upside down into a swampy area. Allegan County sheriff's deputies said one of the men was driving the pickup south on 12th Street south of M-118 about 2 am when he lost control and the truck left the road. The truck rolled and came to rest on its top in two to three feet of water, the spokeswoman said. Because of the way the truck landed, deputies were not sure which man was driving. Deputies said the men apparently were trapped in the vehicle for some time before the mishap was discovered and Otsego rescue teams were contacted. A hydraulic tool was used to pry the men from the truck. Hall was pronounced dead at the scene, a sheriff's department spokeswoman said. Kolhoff was listed in good condition this afternoon at Borgess Medical Center.
