HUDSONVILLE, MI (WHTC) - A 46-year-old Wyoming man died on Eastbound I-196 under the M-6 westbound overpass east of Hudsonville this morning. Dispatchers say that Gregory Jay Folker's car lost control just before 5 AM, slammed into the concrete base of the bridge at full speed, and burst into flames. The motorist, who was unbuckled at the time, died at the scene. Accident reconstruction teams spent several hours at the scene searching for causes to the crash. It was the third fatal accident in Ottawa County in as many days, after 51-year-old David Pierson of Zeeland and 46-year-old Kenneth Russell of Holland died in separate crashes.
