Police responded to the rollover crash in the 800 block of Pennoyer Avenue at about 12:10 p.m. Monday. 

An 31-year-old Grand Rapids woman driving a Range Rover came around the corner off southbound Beacon Boulevard, struck and broke a utility pole and flipped onto its side.

Odessia Bennis said she heard a loud bang, looked outside and saw two passers by helping the woman out of the car that crashed in front of Bennis' house.

Police administered a series of driving under the influence tests on the woman, and then took her away in the back of the police car.

She was arrested for driving while impaired (alcohol), said Sgt. Josh Tomes of the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety.

While police were handling the first crash, they heard a bang, walked up to the corner and noted a multi-car rear-ender crash on southbound Beacon Boulevard just south of Pennoyer.

Police reported one person suffered minor neck pain in that crash.
