Corn prevents vehicle from crushing boy

Submitted By AP Wire Service

BLOOMER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP), Jan 03 _ Officials say corn stalks prevented a vehicle from crushing a 7-year-old boy following a rollover crash and allowed him to escape with minor injuries.

WOOD-TV reports (http://bit.ly/sPCJ6O) the boy was thrown from the vehicle following Monday's crash into a corn field in Montcalm County's Bloomer Township, about 45 miles northeast of Grand Rapids. The station says he was treated at a hospital and released.

Authorities say the driver lost control on an icy road, and the corn stalks propped up the vehicle. Two adults and several other children in the vehicle weren't hurt.
