Allegan County

GANGES TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A passenger was struck and injured by another out-of-control car while waiting outside of a car that had slid off the highway south of Saugatuck.

The passenger, Diego Santoyo, is a 25-year-old man from Zeeland. Authorities say he stood outside the car after it slid into the ditch due to poor conditions on I-196 just north of Blue Star Highway. Another car lost control and struck him.

Santoyo was taken to Holland Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Other riders were taken to the same hospital with less serious injuries.

Allegan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash.
