Plymouth Police Officer Ray West was the investigating officer and learned the 27 year old Dan Sutton was east bound at the intersection in front of the Marathon Gas Station when he saw a west bound van being driven by a person who was convulsing with an incapacitating seizure.
Sutton jumped out of his vehicle and into the window of the van steering it to avoid the vehicles stopped at the intersection behind him. He was able to steer the van away from the other vehicle resulting in only minor damage to them.
Sutton was able to steer the van as it jumped the curb near the pumps at the gas station and avoided the pumps, other vehicles and the people at the gas station. He was able to bring the vehicle to a stop in the brush behind the gas station.
The driver was transported to the Plymouth Hospital.
