Second crash in two days at Third and Columbus

Watch for your stop signs, folks.

Two cars collided Tuesday afternoon at Third and Columbus in Grand Haven after a driver failed to yield at a stop sign.

A similar crash occurred Monday between a dump truck and a car when that car's driver also failed to stop at the stop sign.

In Tuesday's crash, Ed Hassenrik was driving north on Third Street when he said he failed to yield at the stop sign at the Columbus Avenue intersection.

Hassenrik crashed into Holland resident Ellen Hale, who was driving east on Columbus Avenue.

The crash occurred shortly before 4 p.m. Tuesday. The drivers said they did not suffer any injuries.

Traffic does not stop on the eastbound one-way Columbus in that area, but cross traffic has stop signs.

What refreshing honesty - kudos to Ed.

people get so busy where their going, they forget the rules

Why would you give him kudos for being honest. The man caused an accident. Which could have seriously injured someone. Him being honest about it is nice. But doesn't account for anything. Because he should be honest about it. I don't believe that people should be praised for doing what they are supposed to do. It's called being accountable.
People don't forget the rules, they choose to ignore them.
