ALGOMA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A woman was airlifted to the hospital Monday afternoon following a rollover crash southwest of Cedar Springs.

The crash happened around 3:20 p.m. at the intersection of Algoma Avenue and Indian Lakes Road NE in Algoma Township.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Department said witnesses told deputies that a westbound car slowed at the stop sign, never stopped, and then accelerated to get through the intersection. The car was broadsided by a northbound pickup truck and rolled, landing in an adjacent yard.

The driver of the car, 21-year-old Olivia Anderson of the Comstock Park area, was pinned in and had to be freed by emergency responders. Aero Med took her to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids with head trauma. Hospital officials told 24 Hour News 8 she is listed in critical condition as of Wednesday morning.

The driver of the pickup, a 60-year-old from the Sand Lake area, wasn’t seriously injured.

The sheriff’s office said the crash remained under investigation, but that alcohol was not believed to be a factor. Both drivers were wearing seat belts.
