CHESTER TWP. — Four people were injured in a two-car crash early Wednesday afternoon at a Chester Township intersection.

Ambulances transported three of those people to local hospitals.

Emergency crews responded at 12:44 p.m. to the intersection of Kenowa and Gooding streets. 

A 2000 Buick Century driven by 66-year-old Augustin Morales-Rodriguez of Kent City was traveling south on Kenowa and failed to stop at a stop sign at Gooding Street, said Sgt. Steve Austin of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office. The Buick struck a 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser that was eastbound on Gooding.

The PT Cruiser was being driven by Trinidad Ramos-Hernandez, 27, of Holton.

Ambulances transported both drivers, as well as a passenger in the Rodriguez car — Jose Leon-Trigueros, 54, also of Kent City — to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids. They were all in stable condition on Wednesday afternoon, Austin said.

A passenger in the PT Cruiser, 34-year-old Ramos Hernandez-Jeremias, also of Holton, was treated at the scene and released.

Morales-Rodriguez was ticketed for disregarding a stop sign, Austin said.
