Kent County

BOWNE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities say a disregarded stop sign appears to be the cause of a two-vehicle crash in Kent County in which four people were hurt.

The crash happened shortly after 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in the intersection of Alden Nash Avenue and 92nd Street in rural Bowne Township, east of Caledonia.

Michigan State Police say a 53-year-old man from Clarksville headed west on 92nd Street in a Chevy Impala was hit in the intersection of Alden Nash Avenue by a Nissan Pathfinder driven by a 36-year-old Grand Rapids woman. According to police, that woman failed to stop at a stop sign.

Two 13-year-old passengers in the Pathfinder were injured in the crash. One teen had life-threatening injuries and was airlifted by Aero Med to a Grand Rapids hospital. The other teen was taken via ambulance to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Both drivers were taken to a Grand Rapids hospital with non-life threatening injuries. State police had not released their names as of Thursday afternoon.

MSP also said drugs may been a factor in the crash, which is still under investigation.
