Esther C. Doran of Grand Haven was in stable condition after the 4:20 p.m. crash on Ferris Street near Hidden Creek, said Sgt. Chris Koster of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department.

Doran was the front seat passenger in the 2012 Ford Focus driven by her daughter, Cathleen Ann Doran of California.

Esther Doran was listed in critical condition this morning at Hackley Hospital in Muskegon. Cathleen Doran was treated for her injuries and released, a hospital spokesperson said.

Cathleen Doran was driving the car west on Ferris Street when she fell asleep, Koster said.

The car crossed the centerline, struck a mailbox, went into the ditch, struck an incline, flipped across a driveway and landed on the driver’s side, Koster said.

Firefighters had to cut the top off the vehicle to get the two women out of the car, said Lt. Matt Schweitzer of Grand Haven Township Fire/Rescue.

Ferris Street was closed to traffic in the area for about an hour while emergency crews worked the scene, and the car and debris were removed from the area, he said.
