Crash sends four to hospital


A head-on accident in Algoma Township Tuesday afternoon sent a Wyoming family, including an infant, to the hospital.

According to Kent County Sheriff Deputy Jason VanDyke, the family was driving a blue escort southbound on Algoma Avenue about 4 p.m., after visiting their parents in the Cedar Springs area, when a northbound GMC Jimmy, driven by a Cedar Springs woman, tried to turn west (left) into a driveway and two cars collided head-on.

The front seat passenger in the escort, a woman, was pinned inside and had to be extricated. She and the other three passengers, including a child in a car seat, sustained injuries and were transported to the hospital. The driver of the GMC Jimmy was not transported.

Deputy VanDyke said he does not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Both Algoma and Courtland Fire Departments assisted at the scene.
