A red Chevy Blazer was southbound on 120th Avenue when it crossed the centerline, just south of Sleeper Street, and hit a tan Chevy Blazer that was northbound on 120th Avenue just before 7:15 a.m.. said Sgt. Jon Ditmar of the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department.

The tan Blazer came to rest in a ditch on the east side of 120th Avenue after the crash.

The driver of the red Blazer, a male, was pinned in the vehicle and had to be extricated by firefighters from Robinson and Grand Haven townships. He and the driver of the tan Blazer, a female, were transported to North Ottawa Community Hospital by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.

Ditmar said frost on the red Blazer’s windshield could be a factor in the crash.

Police did not have identity information on the crash victims by press time this morning.

just someone that is to lazy to scrap off the frost from their windshield, I can tell you how many times I have seen just a round hole in the ice or frost on other peoples windshield, that what he gets for being to lazy and now some other person had to pay for that laziness. it only takes about 5 minutes to clear the whole windshield.
