Initial reports were that a woman and her two children were injured and pinned inside their vehicle, a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer that rolled over following the crash. The family members were properly secured and were not pinned inside the vehicle, said Sgt. Brian Buter of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.
The Trailblazer was driven by Dawn Dameron, 27, of Greeley, Colorado. She and her two children, ages 1 year and 5 months, were not injured.
Buter said the crash occurred at about 9:20 a.m. when a 2016 Ford F150 pickup truck was southbound on 148th Avenue and struck the driver’s side of the Trailblazer, which was eastbound on Cleveland Street (M-104). The Trailblazer rolled over and landed on its side southeast of the intersection.
Donald Irwin, 67, of Muskegon was driving his pickup truck south on 148th Avenue and stopped for the red light, Buter said. For an unknown reason, Irwin thought the light changed and he proceeded into the intersection, striking the Trailblazer.
Irwin was ticketed for disregarding a traffic signal, Buter said.
Traffic was slowed after the crash, but able to get through the intersection.
Emergency crews, including Spring Lake Township firefighters and North Ottawa Community Hospital paramedics, cleared the scene shortly before 10 a.m.
