The crash happened at the intersection of Cleveland Street and 116th Avenue, just east of I-96, shortly before 5 p.m. Both eastbound and westbound traffic on Cleveland Street were redirected for nearly an hour after the three-car crash.
The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office along with Crockery Township Fire units responded to the crash at 4:50 p.m.
Police said the investigation at the scene revealed that a 49-year-old Nunica man driving a 2000 Buick Century was eastbound on Cleveland Street and slowing down to turn left onto 116th Avenue. A 16-year-old West Olive girl driving a 2004 Ford Edge was also traveling east on Cleveland when the Edge collided with the Buick.
Sgt. Rick Sykes of the Sheriff’s Office said the first crash forced the Buick into a collision with a westbound vehicle, a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze driven by a 55-year-old Muskegon resident.
The Nunica man was transported by a North Ottawa Community Hospital ambulance to the Grand Haven hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Sykes said. There was no word on injuries to the other two drivers.
The crash remains under investigation by the Sheriff's Office.
