HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — An 18-year-old woman was killed early Sunday in a two-car crash that also injured three other people.
The wreck happened around 4:50 a.m. on Douglas Avenue near VanDyke Street in Holland Township, north of Holland, according to a report from the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department.
Marissa Kronemeyer was on her way to work when a vehicle driven by Ronald Mancha crossed the centerline and struck Kronemeyer’s car nearly head-on, the sheriff’s office said. Kronemeyer died at the scene.
Authorities said Mancha fled the scene after the crash, but was later located. The sheriff’s office says he did not have a valid driver’s license at the time of the crash.
Mancha, 21, was taken to Zeeland Hospital and then transferred to Spectrum Hospital Downtown Grand Rapids with critical injuries to his chest.
His two passengers, ages 16 and 20, were taken to Holland Community Hospital with serious injuries.
The use of alcohol is being investigated as the cause of the crash, the sheriff’s office said.
It was not immediately known what charges Mancha may face.
**Correction: An earlier version of this story stated Mancha’s passengers also fled the scene. That was not correct. Authorities said the at-fault driver fled the scene.
