A 58-year-old female was driving west on Waverly Avenue about 10:15 a.m. She started to turn onto southbound Beechtree and did not see a pedestrian walking across the street pulling a wagon, police said. The vehicle struck the wagon, which knocked the pedestrian to the ground.

The pedestrian, a 23-year-old Grand Haven woman, suffered a minor wrist injury and was treated at the scene.

At 4:40 p.m. Wednesday, a 25-year-old Grand Haven man was riding his bicycle north on Beechtree at Slayton when a vehicle struck him. The cyclist received minor injuries and was taken to North Ottawa Community Hospital for treatment, police said.

The white passenger vehicle, driven by a man, left the scene, police said.
