HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Two men from Holland are in the hospital after a serious crash in Holland Township.
It happened around 9:45 p.m. Saturday on Butternut Drive at West Mae Rose Avenue just south of Riley Street.

The 34-year-old motorcyclist hit the side of the vehicle and was thrown from his bike. Aero Med flew him to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital with critical injuries.
The 46-year-old driver of the Pontiac Grand Prix was taken by ambulance to Holland Hospital with moderate injuries, according to the sheriff’s office.
