HART — A 35-year-old Rothbury woman pleaded “no contest” in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Nov. 9, to a felony of driving while license suspended (DWLS) causing injury resulting from an accident last month involving a 26-year-old Rothbury woman who was seriously injured after she fell from a moving vehicle while riding on the front bumper.

Beverly Renee Bryant, of 2362 W. Cleveland Rd., is set for sentencing Jan. 4 at 9 a.m.

In exchange for Bryant’s plea, the prosecution dismissed one count of failure to stop at a serious injury accident.

Bryant was arrested after fleeing the scene of the accident on Bartlett Road near Forrest Street in the village limits Oct. 2, according to the Hart post of the Michigan State Police.

Troopers arrived on scene and determined a 26-year-old Rothbury woman had fallen from a moving vehicle, while riding on the front bumper area of her friend’s vehicle, according to an MSP press release. The victim was transported by Oceana County EMS to Hackley Hospital in Muskegon.
