Allegan County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called around 9:30 p.m. to the area of 136th Avenue and 41st Street. They said a truck drove off the road and hit a tree after not being able to drive around a curve.

The passenger, a 24-year-old man, was airlifted to a Grand Rapids area hospital and is in critical condition. The driver, a 43-year-old man, was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment.

The crash is still under investigation, but alcohol is suspected to be a factor.
