ROBINSON TWP. — David Munroe said he was just three houses down from his Robinson Township home and on his way to work Monday morning when a car ran a stop sign and collided with his pickup truck.

The impact from the collision pushed Munroe’s vehicle off the road, where it rolled over into a farm field on the southwest corner of the intersection of 128th Avenue and Rich Street.

The car that hit his truck also went off the road.

Emergency crews responded to the crash at 7:30 a.m.

Ottawa County Sheriff’s deputies said the pickup truck was southbound on 128th Avenue with the right of way. The car was traveling west on Rich Street when its driver failed to stop for the stop sign, deputies said.

The driver of the 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix, 19-year-old Donovan Stoddard, was transported by ambulance to North Ottawa Community Hospital. He suffered head and neck injuries, said Sgt. Bob Ruster of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department. Hospital officials said Stoddard was treated and released.

Munroe, who was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado, suffered minor facial injuries and sought his own treatment.

Both men were wearing seat belts, Ruster said.

The crash remains under investigation.
