Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Troopers are looking for a woman driving a car that may have hit another vehicle, causing a crash that injured two people in Grand Rapids.

It happened around 7 p.m. Saturday on US-131 near Wealthy Street, the Michigan State Police said.

Investigators say a 48-year-old man of Muskegon driving northbound on US-131 lost control of the three-wheeler and crashed into the right shoulder wall near Wealthy Street.

The cyclist and a 13-year-old passenger were taken to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The driver and passenger were wearing helmets at the time of the crash.

According to statements gathered by troopers, a silver, older model Chevrolet Malibu driven by a woman in her mid-40s possibly hit the cyclist and caused him to lose control and crash.

The driver of the Malibu allegedly continued north on US-131 after the incident, according to investigators.

Any witnesses to the crash or those who provided aid on scene are asked to contact the Michigan State Police Grand Rapids Post at 616.866.4411.
