Police said Elling was driving westbound on Adams Street around 5 a.m. on April 14 when she ran a red light, traveling into the path of a pickup truck heading north on 96th Avenue.

The truck, driven by a 51-year-old Holland man, collided with Elling’s driver’s side door, causing her car to flip. Elling was flown to a Grand Rapids hospital where she later died.

The other driver was taken to a nearby hospital where his condition was listed as stable.

The crash closed a portion of 96th Avenue for about two hours.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office said alcohol did not play a role with the crash.
