GRAND HAVEN TWP. — A Coopersville woman and a West Olive man were injured in a two-car crash late Thursday morning at U.S. 31 and Comstock Street.

Emergency crews responded to the Grand Haven Township intersection at 11:40 a.m.

Barbara Crandle, 82, was driving a 2008 Cadillac south on the highway and attempting to turn east onto Comstock Street, said Sgt. Steve Austin of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office. The Coopersville woman proceeded through a flashing yellow light and was struck by a car heading north on U.S. 31.

The northbound car, a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by 64-year-old Scott Durfee of West Olive, could not avoid colliding with the Cadillac as it turned in front of the SUV, Austin said.

An ambulance transported Crandle to Mercy Hospital in Muskegon. She was in stable condition.

Durfee was more seriously injured and was taken by ambulance to North Ottawa Community Hospital.

Crandle was ticketed for failing to yield the right of way, Austin said.
