TALLMADGE TWP. — A Grand Rapids woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries when her SUV left the road Monday morning and crashed into a large, steel sign post in Ottawa County.

Laura Schurman, 45, was traveling east on Lake Michigan Drive, west of 14th Avenue in Tallmadge Township, when, for unknown reasons, her 2013 Chevrolet Equinox went off the road and struck a post in the parking lot at Woodland Equipment, said Sgt. Steve Austin of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department.

Schuman was pinned inside her smashed vehicle following the 8:07 a.m. crash. She was extricated by Tallmadge Township firefighters.

An ambulance transported her to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids.
