HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Both directions of US-31 have reopened after a two-car crash near Holland Tuesday morning.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office said the crash happened shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday at the intersection of US-31 and Felch Street in Holland Township.

Investigators said a 20-year-old Holland Township woman was driving eastbound on Felch when did not stop for the red light at US-31, hitting a northbound Jeep then struck a power pole. The crash caused the power lines to fall into the roadway and knock out power in the area.

The 20-year-old Holland Township woman was not wearing a seat belt and was taken to the hospital with a head injury. The other driver was taken to the hospital to be checked out for injuries, the sheriff’s office said.

Both directions of US-31 were closed for several hours as crews worked to clear the scene. It has since reopened.
