A Kent City teen was seriously injured last weekend in a crash in Sparta Township.
According to the Kent County Sheriff’s Department, Samuel Limon, 17, was traveling eastbound on 17 Mile about 3 p.m. Sunday September 13, in a Dodge Caravan, when he ran the stop sign at Fruit Ridge Avenue and was struck by a southbound F150 pickup.
Limon was airlifted by AeroMed to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital with neck, back and chest pain, and facial injuries. He was later upgraded to fair condition.
The driver of the pickup, Charles Crandall, 48, of Grand Rapids, was transported to Butterworth Hospital by Rockford Ambulance with arm, leg and stomach pain.
Alcohol was not a factor in the accident, and both were wearing seatbelts.
