SPRING LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Police say one person was killed and two others injured in a crash in Ottawa County Friday evening.

It happened around 5:30 p.m. on US-31 near Taft Street in Spring Lake Township.

Witnesses told deputies that a truck driven by 26-year-old Zachary Hall was driving at a high rate of speed when it struck a guardrail, bounced off and struck another truck. Both vehicles then left the road and rolled several times. Hall’s truck then struck a tree, and the second truck came to rest against the Herman Miller building, according to Ottawa County deputies.

Hall, a Muskegon resident, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputies say the driver of the second truck, 29-year-old Austin Miller, was pinned in the truck and had to be removed. Both he and his passenger, 27-year-old Jacqueline Garrison were taken to an area hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
