Woman crashes, then hit by another car

HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A 42-year-old woman was hospitalized after being struck by a vehicle Wednesday morning.

The crash happened around 7:40 a.m. on 140th Avenue at Deer Cove Drive, near the entrance to Macatawa Bay Middle School in Holland Township.
