Sheriff’s Office: Truck runs stop sign; 3 hurt

ZEELAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Three people were taken to the hospital after a three-vehicle crash north of Zeeland Monday.

It happened around 12:10 p.m. on 96th Avenue at Quincy Street, according to Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department.

Duane Moore was driving his 2004 GMC Sierra north on 96th when he ran the four-way stop at Quincy, the sheriff’s office said.

His pickup truck hit a westbound 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix. The driver of that car, Jenny Morris, had obeyed the stop sign.

Another GMC Sierra that had been headed south on 96th and was stopped at the intersection was then struck by Moore’s truck.

Moore, 72, of Allegan, was not hurt. Passengers Diane Moore, 62 and 67-year-old Nancy Brauer — both of Allegan — were taken to Holland Hospital in serious condition.

Morris, 22, of Hudsonville, was also taken to Holland Hospital in serious condition.

The driver of the second Sierra, 68-year-old Craig Buter of Zeeland, was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Everyone involved was wearing their seat belt, the sheriff’s office said.
