Police: Driver admits falling asleep before head-on crash in Spring Lake

SPRING LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) - Police say a teenager admitted she fell asleep before her car collided with another vehicle on M-104 Friday afternoon.

The accident happened at 5 p.m. near 144th Avenue in Spring Lake Township.

People at businesses along M-104 -- also known as Cleveland St. -- say they looked up when they heard the impact.

"They were both just spinning with smoke coming out of them," says Leroy Zalsman. "I heard a pop, looked up, and they were both spinning both cars."

Police say the driver of the westbound car, Rebecca Plont, 16, of Nunica, told them she fell asleep at the wheel.   Her 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix veered into the eastbound lanes.   Deputies say Plonk told them she woke up just before hitting the other car.

Water weeds overtaking Spring Lake

SPRING LAKE, Mich. (WZZM)-- The summer weather has been great for those who live on or spend time enjoying Spring Lake. But all the sunlight is also adding to what some say is the biggest weed problem in a decade.

"It has come on strong this year," says Emil VanCura of Ferrysburg.

He says the weeds blanketing the lake bottom are almost solid near her dock.

"[It's] the worst I have seen it since [19]90," she says.

But the out of control Milfoil weed growth isn't just on his side of the lake. Spring Lake President John Nash sees it behind his home too.

"Who was to expect a summer like this," Nash says. "I think because of the unusual warmth and some heavy rain events, we have had more weed growth then we have had in previous summers."
