BLENDON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- A Good Samaritan has died and another person was seriously hurt when a driver hit a disabled vehicle Saturday night on Port Sheldon Street near 56th Avenue.
Ottawa County Sheriff's deputies say Jenna Esterley, 18, of Jenison pulled on the side of the road to check her GPS, but she pulled over too far and her vehicle became stuck in a ditch.
A passing driver, David Pierson, 51, of Zeeland, offered to help. While Pierson and Esterley's passenger, 17-year-old Samantha Brown, were outside of the vehicle talking, a third driver slammed into Esterley's vehicle, hitting Pierson and Brown.
Pierson was critically hurt and died later at the hospital. Brown was hospitalized in serious but stable condition. Esterley was not hurt.
The at-fault driver, 22-year-old Jeremy Vedder of Hudsonville, told authorities he didn't see the disabled vehicle.
