TALLMADGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Ottawa County sheriff’s deputies responded to a single-car accident near Walker early Sunday morning.

Deputies arrived on scene near the intersection of 8th Avenue and Leonard Street in Tallmadge Township around 4:45 a.m. They found a car laying upside down with an injured man laying on the ground nearby.

Authorities say the driver was driving west toward Allendale when he ran off the left side of the road, hit a mailbox, a utility box, a cement wall and then a tree before the car rolled and landed on its roof.

The driver was able to get himself out of the car after the accident and was taken to the hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

It is unknown if seat belt use played a role in the crash.
