The suspect fled in the van and caused a two-vehicle crash at the corner of James Street and U.S. 31.
Kempker said June Reimink, an 81-year-old Holland resident who was driving east on James Street, was hurt in the crash. She is currently in serious but stable condition, according to a Holland Hospital official.
The suspect, whose name is being held pending arraignment, is in custody at the Ottawa County Jail, Kempker said.
The incident is still under investigation, he said.
