SAINT JOSEPH TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Three children were uninjured after the school van they were riding in slammed into a home just after 3 p.m. Monday.
It happened at a home on Garden Lane outside of Brown Elementary School.
According to the Saint Joseph Township Fire Department, the driver of the Lakeshore Schools’ van was pulling out of the school parking lot and suffered a heart attack.

Nobody was in the garage at the time of the collision. The driver was transported to Lakeland Hospital in severe condition.
