An ambulance took both men to North Ottawa Community Hospital following the 10:39 a.m. crash. A hospital spokesperson said both were treated and released Wednesday.
Matthew Charles Walsh, 21, of Hanford, Calif., was traveling northwest on Mercury Drive in his 2011 Ford Focus. He attempted to make a left turn onto Robbins Road and collided with a van, said Sgt. Steve Austin of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department.
Marvin J. Casemier, 83, of Grand Haven was driving his 2000 Dodge Caravan southeast on Mercury when the Focus turned in front of him.
The drivers were the only occupants in their vehicles. Both were wearing seatbelts and their airbags did deploy, police said.
Austin said Walsh received a ticket for failure to yield the right of way, a $120 infraction.
Grand Haven Township firefighters assisted at the scene.
