GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities said a 92-year-old man died following a crash near Hudsonville.
The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office said it learned Monday that Laurence Fryling, of Grand Rapids, had died from his injuries at the hospital.
The crash happened shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of 8th Avenue and Jackson Street in Georgetown Township.
Investigators believe a 2018 Lexus, driven by a 38-year-old Hudsonville woman, was heading westbound on Jackson when the driver did not stop at the stop sign at the 8th Avenue intersection. The Lexus struck a southbound vehicle driven by a 66-year-old Grand Rapids woman. The force of the crash caused the southbound vehicle to go off the roadway, hitting a utility pole and flipping upside down.
The driver of the southbound vehicle and a passenger were taken to the hospital with serious injuries, the sheriff’s office said Saturday.
The crash remains under investigation.
