Crash results in serious injuries

This vehicle rolled after t-boning a pickup that ran a stop sign at Myers Lake Ave. and Sand Lake Rd. Tuesday evening.

A deer running across the road may have been the cause of a two-car accident Tuesday evening, at Myers Lake Avenue and Sand Lake Rd, in Nelson Township.

According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, a red Chevrolet pickup truck traveling northbound on Myers Lake Avenue ran the stop sign at Sand Lake Rd about 6:20 p.m. and was t-boned on the driver’s side by a Suburban heading eastbound on Sand Lake. Police said that Bradley Ball, 19, of Vergennes Township, was distracted by a deer running across the road, and did not see the stop sign. Both vehicles skidded off the roadway, into a yard on the NE corner of the intersection, with the Suburban landing on its side.

Ball was unresponsive and was flown by Aero Med to Butterworth hospital with multiple injuries. His passenger, Kayla Stanford, 19, of Lowell, suffered minor injuries and was transported to Butterworth by ambulance.

The driver of the Suburban, Marilyn Anderson, 73, of Sand Lake, had minor injuries, but refused any medical treatment or transport to the hospital.

Both the Sand Lake and Cedar Springs Fire Departments assisted at the scene.
