Robinson Township Fire Chief Paul VanVelzen said Grand Haven resident Erin Purdy was driving a Jeep north on 120th Avenue and failed to stop at a stop sign at Lincoln Street at about 6:52 a.m.

“She did not stop for the stop sign and was broadsided by a garbage truck driving westbound,” VanVelzen said.

Purdy had just dropped off her children at a day care center, he said.

VanVelzen said Purdy only sustained minor injuries as a result of the crash and was taken to North Ottawa Community Hospital. She was under observation in the emergency department this morning.
