A motorcyclist suffered severe injuries after a car collided with him Saturday afternoon, October 19.
According to Sgt. Ben Cammenga, of the Kent County Sheriff’s Department, Michael Streeter, 55, of Sparta, was traveling southbound on White Creek Avenue, south of 17 Mile, when a northbound vehicle tried to turn left into Big Boy, and turned in front of the motorcycle, causing them to collide.
AeroMed was put on standby, but later cancelled. A call from the family confirmed that Streeter suffered a broken back, broken ribs, and a collapsed lung. He was in intensive care until Friday, October 25, and will move to Mary Free Bed for rehabilitation when he is better.
The driver of the vehicle, Jeffrey VanderKlipp, 48, of Rockford, was not injured.
