CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man was hospitalized early Sunday morning after a crash that left him pinned inside his car.

Ottawa County deputies said they were dispatched to a two-car crash on 24th Avenue just north of Truman Street around 6:40 a.m. on initial reports that a man was pinned in his car.

Investigation shows, according to deputies, that a 2008 Chevrolet HHR was driving south on 24th Avenue and swerved to avoid hitting a deer in the road. The car crossed the centerline and collided with a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado that was driving northbound.

The cars hit head on and the driver of the HHR, a 26-year-old man from Fremont, was pinned momentarily until he was able to get out on his own, according to deputies.

He was taken to a local hospital where he is expected to be OK.

The driver of the Silverado was identified as a 53-year-old man from Conklin and his passenger was a 68-year-old man from Conklin. Both had minor pain but declined treatment and were not taken to the hospital.

The driver of the HHR was driving on a suspended license and was given cited by police for driving left of center, authorities said.
