A Lowell family and a Cedar Springs man were sent to the hospital with serious injuries after a two-car crash Sunday afternoon in Courtland Township.

According to Kent County Sheriff Sgt. Pete Gerkin, the accident occurred about 4:44 p.m. at 15 Mile Road and Myers Lake Avenue. They determined that a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix driven by Adam Brace, 29, of Cedar Springs, was traveling westbound on 15 Mile, when it struck a 2000 Dodge Caravan traveling southbound on Myers Lake. The two vehicles ended up in the ditch on the southwest corner of the intersection.

The driver of the minivan, Alan Richard Kenyon, 53, of Lowell, and Brace, the driver of the Pontiac, were both transported to Spectrum Butterworth by Rockford Ambulance with serious injuries. Alan’s wife, Christine, 46, was a passenger in the van, and was taken by AeroMed to Spectrum Butterworth with serious injuries. Their daughter, Abigail, 10, also a passenger in the van, was taken by ambulance to DeVos Children’s Hospital with serious injuries. None of the patients’ injuries are considered life-threatening.

A second AeroMed helicopter was requested and landed but did not transport any patients.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor and the accident remains under investigation.

Also assisting at the scene was the Cedar Springs Police, Courtland Fire and Rescue, and Cedar Springs Fire and Rescue.
