Three injured in Sparta accident


A car that turned in front of an oncoming vehicle resulted in a crash that sent three to the hospital last Saturday night.

According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, Anna Lynema, 80, of Cedar Springs, was traveling eastbound on 13 Mile Road, in a 2007 Mercury Milan, just before 8 p.m. Saturday, May 3, when she turned northbound on Long Lake Drive, and collided with a 1998 Nissan Altima, traveling westbound on 13 Mile.

The driver of the Altima, Leslie Belaire, 18, of Sparta Township, and passenger Jonathan Krumenacker, 18, of Alpine Township, were sent to Spectrum Butterworth with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Lynema was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Neither alcohol or speed are believed to be a factor. The accident is still under investigation.

    Jonathan, thank you for clarification on the gender of the driver. The press release we received simply read Leslie Belaire, 18. I have corrected the error in the story. As far as your injuries, we are glad you are alive! What you read in the story is what the police reported to us.
