WALKER, Mich. (WOOD) — Investigators in Walker believe alcohol played a role in a head-on crash that sent three people to the hospital.

It happened around 5:45 a.m. Monday near the intersection of Remembrance Road and Fenwick Street NW.

Walker police say two vehicles collided head on. Firefighters had to free a 39-year-old Walker woman from the wreckage of her vehicle. She was hospitalized with serious injuries, according to officers.

The 46-year-old Grand Rapids man driving the other vehicle and his passenger, a 35-year-old woman from Walker, were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Police say while alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash, the investigation is ongoing.
