A westbound Pontiac Grand Prix collided with a southbound Dodge Caravan, according to a Kent County Sheriff’s Department release.

The driver of the sedan, 29-year-old Adam Brace of Cedar Springs, was taken to a Grand Rapids hospital via ambulance with serious injuries.

The driver of the minivan, 53-year-old Alan Kenyon of Lowell, and his 10-year-old daughter Abigail were also taken to Grand Rapids hospitals via ambulance with serious injuries.

Kenyon’s wife Christine Kenyon, 46, was airlifted to a Grand Rapids hospital. Her injuries were also considered serious.

No one sustained injuries considered life-threatening, the sheriff’s department said.

Two Aero Med helicopters were called to the scene, though only one transported a patient.

Sunday afternoon, authorities were still working to determine which driver was at fault.

Alcohol was not a factor, the sheriff’s department said.
