The front-seat passenger in one vehicle, Andrew Bloomingdale, 34, of Holland, was flown by medical helicopter to Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids. He was listed in fair condition this morning.

Two other people in that car, Tabitha Pirrotta, 25, and Timothy Straznac, 28, both of Holland, were taken by ambulance to Holland Hospital where they were treated and released, a hospital spokesperson said.

Pirrotta was driving her car east on Quincy, stopped at the stop sign and was just starting to continue on when her car was struck on the passenger side by a pickup truck, said Sgt. Matt Wildfong of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department.

Witnesses said the truck never slowed or stopped at the intersection, Wildfong said.

The truck was driven by a 23-year-old Zeeland whom police declined to name. She was arrested for driving without a license causing serious injury, Wildfong said.

She and her 9-month old child, Izaiah Trinidad, were not injured. The infant was in a child seat.

All of the people in both vehicles were wearing seatbelts, Wildfong said.
