Teens critically injured in crash

Three teens were critically injured Friday evening, July 9, when the vehicle they were riding in pulled out in front of another car in Grattan Township.

According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, Dezmond Fiebig, 17, of Howard City, was traveling eastbound on 5 Mile Road in a 1996 Chevrolet Lumina about 10:44 p.m. when he ran a stop sign and pulled out in front of a 1999 Chevrolet S-10 truck traveling northbound on Lincoln Lake. Fiebig was transported to Spectrum Butterworth with non-life-threatening injuries. One of his backseat passengers, Jalen Salas, 17, of Ionia, was critically injured and flown by Aero Med to Butterworth. Two 16-year-old female passengers from Rockford were also injured critically, with one being ejected from the car.

The driver of the pickup, David Wright, 26, of Belding, and his passenger, Mary Tompsett, 29, of Rockford, were transported to United Hospital in Greenville for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Alcohol was not considered to be a factor.
