Martinez, 41, was taken to North Ottawa Community Hospital by ambulance. His condition was not known at press time.
The driver of the Cherokee, 22-year-old DeLaine Rae Vanderlaan of Spring Lake, and a passenger in her SUV, a 7-month-old girl, were not injured, according to Sgt. Steve Austin of the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department.
Austin said Martinez was cited for failing to yield, while Vanderlaan was cited for driving with a suspended license.
