GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — One person was seriously injured when a moped collided with a van in Grand Rapids Monday afternoon.

It happened around 3:35 p.m. at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue SE and Garden Street.

The Grand Rapids Police Department says the van stopped at a stop sign, but then pulled into the path of the moped, which had the right of way.

The moped driver, a 34-year-old Wyoming resident, sustained serious injuries but is expected to be OK.

GRPD said the moped driver remained in serious condition Tuesday.

The moped driver did not have a valid driver’s license or a cycle/moped endorsement, according to a GRPD news release.

Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the crash.
