ALLENDALE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Two people were injured after a car crash in Allendale Township early Sunday morning, deputies said.

It happened around 4:45 a.m. near the intersection of 48th Avenue and Lake Michigan Drive.

Deputies say a 22-year-old woman from Grand Rapids drove through a blinking red light as she was crossing the intersection on 48th Avenue. She then hit a 22-year-old woman from Allendale who was traveling westbound through a blinking yellow light on Lake Michigan Drive.

The front seat passenger in the first car, a 20-year-old man from Grand Rapids, was taken to a hospital by ambulance, where his injuries are thought to be non-life-threatening.

The 22-year-old woman from Allendale also sustained non-life-threatening injuries from the crash but chose to take private transport to a hospital instead of being taken by ambulance.

It is unclear at this time if alcohol or speed played a factor in the crash.

This crash is still under investigation by the Ottawa County Sherriff’s Office.
