“The setting sun may have been a factor in this crash,” Ruster said.
Ball’s truck went into a field and flipped over, Ruster said. Ball was taken by ambulance to St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Rapids with life-threatening leg and head injuries.
Zuverink and one of her children, Avery, 3, suffered minor injuries and were taken by ambulance to Spectrum Hospital in Grand Rapids, Ruster said. Another daughter, three-month-old Emma, was not injured.
Everyone in both vehicles was wearing a seatbelt or were properly restrained in a child seat, Ruster said.
The accident remains under investigation.
