Update: Police Report On John The Canuck's December Accident

GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan  — The man who caused a crash that killed  B-93 radio host and Ionia County dispatcher, John Wiechenthal, isn’t  facing any criminal charges.

Wiechenthal was killed in a crash  last Dec. 21 after a pickup truck smashed into the rear end of his car,  sending both vehicles into multiple utility poles. Kentwood police said  they were following up on reports that the driver who hit Wiechenthal  was driving erratically at the time of the collision.

Kentwood  police investigators determined the pickup driver had a medical event  while driving that caused the crash. A Kent County Prosecutor’s Office  release said the truck was traveling nearly 100 mph at impact and the  accelerator was 100 percent deployed with no attempt to brake at the  time of the crash. The man appeared to have a seizure while driving.

After  the crash, investigators discovered the man had recently undergone  surgery for a brain tumor that brought a risk of seizures. However, the  man wasn’t prevented from driving at the time of the crash and was found  to have no drugs or alcohol in his system.

Please keep John's widow Raeanne and family in your prayers.  DJ Conrad

RIP John.  We miss you
