An ambulance took two Grand Haven teenagers to North Ottawa Community Hospital following the 2:55 p.m. crash on Green Street at 128th Avenue.

The 17-year-old driver of the Mercedes E Class station wagon said the vehicle started hydroplaning as she traveled around the curve, according to a deputy from the Ottawa County Shriff's Department.

The eastbound vehicle straightened out the curve and ran into a large tree on the southeast side of the road.

Injuries were not serious and both occupants of the car wore seatbelts, police said.

UPDATE: Both the driver, Taylor Travis, and her passenger, Brett Sholk, were treated at the hospital and released Sunday afternoon, a hospital spokesperson said on Monday.
