Austin said that Silvas could not avoid the collision.
After impact, the two vehicles skidded off the road, with Valente’s vehicle rolling over and pinning her inside, Austin said.
Silvas was taken by Life Ambulance to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids with non-life-threatening injuries, Austin said. A hospital spokesperson said he was treated and released.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts, he said, and alcohol was not a factor.
Assisting at the scene were the Coopersville-Polkton and the Wright-Tallmadge township fire departments, as well as Coopersville Emergency Services.
