Both cars were in the left southbound lane of the highway, police said. When one vehicle stopped, just south of Coho Drive, the one behind was unable to stop in time and hit the other in the back end at about 3 p.m.
Lt. Clint Holt of the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety said the rear vehicle was being driven by a male, but he did not release his name or age. The driver suffered minor injuries from deployment of his car's airbag, Holt said, and was taken to North Ottawa Community Hospital as a precaution.
The car that was hit from behind was driven by a female, who was not injured, Holt said.
