Wilfredo Perez said he was blinded by the sun’s glare when he drove through a red light at the intersection, according to Sgt. Steve Austin of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.
Perez, 30, was driving a 2009 Buick Enclave south on the highway when he traveled through the red light at about 12:20 p.m.
His car struck a 2011 Buick Lacrosse driven by Heidi Householder, 49, also of Holland. Householder was traveling west on Port Sheldon with a green light, Austin said.
An ambulance transported Perez to Holland Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, Austin said. Householder was not injured.
Perez was ticketed for disregarding a traffic signal.
