COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A western Michigan volunteer firefighter responding to a head-on crash in Kalamazoo County struck another vehicle, fatally injuring the driver.

The Kalamazoo Gazette (http://bit.ly/1kFZL7Q ) reports that the accident occurred Thursday morning as the driver of the vehicle was making a U-turn to avoid a northbound traffic backup created by the initial wreck on Sprinkle Road in Comstock Township.

County Sheriff Richard Fuller said the firefighter was traveling north with lights and sirens on at the time the driver was turning to head south on Sprinkle Road.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The firefighter refused medical attention.

Two motorists involved in the initial head-crash suffered minor injuries.
