GH man killed in Ravenna-area crash

(Updated at 12:30 a.m. Sunday) A 37-year-old Grand Haven father perished in a two-vehicle crash in Muskegon County on Saturday afternoon.

Muskegon County deputies said the driver who caused the crash was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Deputies were called to Heights-Ravenna Road near Ensley Road in Sullivan Township at 4:20 p.m. Saturday. Police said a pickup truck driver was trying to pass another vehicle on Heights-Ravenna Road in rainy conditions when he lost control and hit a 2007 Ford Focus driven by John Shumaker.

Shumaker died at the scene. His daughter was taken to Hackley Hospital in Muskegon with non-life-threatening injuries.

The pickup truck driver was treated at the hospital then taken to the Muskegon County Jail, where he's facing charges for operating while under the influence, resulting in death, police told WZZM-TV.

Notes of support and prayers appeared on Facebook as soon as news of this tragedy spread throughout the community. All expressed their heartfelt condolences and well wishes for the Shumaker family.

"Our love thoughts and prayers are with you and the girls during this very sad time. May God bring you strength and comfort for the days ahead. Love and Prayers," one commenter wrote.

"Eternal light grant upon them and let perpetual light shine....holding you close in our hearts," another commenter wrote.

It should be legal to beat drunks to a fine pulp.
there should be a bounty on drunks...
drunks are assholes.

It's very sad. And it always seems like the drunk driver walks away without much more than a scratch.
