HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A driver has been airlifted and five other have been taken to hospital after being involved in a two-vehicle accident.
The accident happened around 2:30 p.m. at 96th Avenue and Adams Street in Holland Township, according to an Ottawa County’s Sheriff’s Department news release.
Deputies say a Nissan Maxima, driven by 19-year-old Catherine Rector, was trying to exit the Mobile gas station when she was hit by a 2004 Chevrolet Blazer, driven by 25-year-old Tiffany Deroo.
Deroo was traveling westbound on Adams Street when she hit the Maxima near the driver’s side door. Rector was pinned in the car and had to be extricated by Holland Township Fire and Rescue.
Rector was airlifted by Areo Med with serious, non-life threatening injuries. A backseat passenger, Austin Mulders, was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. Mulders was seriously injured and taken to the hospital, the release said.
Four people – a man, a woman and two kids – in the SUV were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
According to the release, Rector was at fault for failing to yield the right of way.
