Ottawa County

CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Two people were injured in a crash involving a vehicle and a tractor near Ravenna Wednesday morning.

It happened around 7 a.m. Wednesday near the intersection of 24th Avenue and Gooding Street in Chester Township, southwest of Ravenna.

A woman was driving westbound on Gooding Street when she rear-ended a tractor, the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office said in a release.

The crash trapped her in her car, officials say. They say the driver of the tractor was ejected.

They were both brought to the hospital. The tractor driver, a 40-year-old man from Sparta, has critical injuries, officials say.

The other driver, a 40-year-old woman from Coopersville, has serious injuries, officials say. Her passenger did not report any injuries.

Deputies believe the speed of the woman and lack of lighting on the back of the tractor appear to be factors.

The crash is still being investigated.
