Kathleen Stypa was transported by ambulance to North Ottawa Community Hospital following the 5:20 a.m. crash. She was later transferred to Hackley Hospital in Muskegon, said her daughter, Bonnie Stypa.
Stypa suffered a broken collar bone and a couple of broken ribs in the crash, her daughter said. Stypa was briefly pinned inside her vehicle, but was quickly extricated when Grand Haven public safety officers arrived on the scene.
Police said Stypa was driving a Ford Taurus east on Robbins, failed to stop for a red light and was struck by a mini-van, which was southbound on Beacon Boulevard.
The mini-van was driven by a Spring Lake man, said Lt. Chip Wright of the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety. The name and condition of the van’s driver were not available.
Stypa had been out delivering the Wall Street Journal for nearly three hours before the crash, her daughter said.
