CROCKERY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) –Two people were taken to the hospital after a 30-year-old Grand Haven woman became distracted by a bug that flew inside her car Friday.

The crash happened around 8:30 a.m. Friday at the intersections of Cleveland Street and Powers Drive in Crockery Township, east of Grand Haven, in Ottawa County.

The 30-year-old Grand Haven woman told deputies she was driving westbound on Cleveland Street in her 2005 Chrysler Sebring when the bug flew into her car.

The woman became distracted by the bug inside her car and then rear-ended a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe, driven by Thomas Larson, 36, of White Hall.

Both involved were taken to the hospital. Larsson was taken to the hospital in fair condition and the woman was stable. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

The woman is not being named due to pending charges of driving with a suspended license and failing to stop within an assured distance.
