Crash sends two to hospital

Two drivers were seriously injured in the early hours of last Sunday morning after one of them crossed into oncoming traffic and was struck by another vehicle.

According to Spl/Lt. Michelle Robinson, of the Michigan State Police, troopers from the Grand Rapids Post responded to the crash on 14 Mile Road east of Northland Drive in Courtland Township, Kent County, about 2:28 a.m. Sunday, May 23.

Their initial investigation showed that a 2003 Honda Accord, driven by a 21-year-old man from Wayland, was traveling westbound on 14 Mile Road when he ran off the shoulder to the right, overcorrected, and crossed back across the roadway into the path of an eastbound vehicle.  The eastbound 2019 Nissan Rouge, driven by a 24-year-old female from Rockford, struck the Honda in the passenger side.

The driver of the Honda had to be extricated from the vehicle and was taken to the hospital with life threatening injuries. The driver of the Nissan was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.  Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this crash.

Troopers were assisted on scene by Life EMS, Courtland Township Fire, Kent County Sheriff’s Department, and the MSP 6th District Accident Investigator.
