JAMESTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A person was flown to the hospital after a crash in Jamestown Township Monday, dispatchers said.

It happened around 3:50 p.m. near 32nd Avenue and Adams Street.

Ottawa County deputies said an 18-year-old man from Hudsonville was driving a pick-up truck south on 32nd Avenue. The driver stopped for a stop sign but hit a semi hauling doubles with gravel inside.

The semi, which was going west on Adams Street, had the right-of-way. A 67-year-old man of Allendale was driving it.

The crash caused the semi to leave the roadway and go into a ditch driver’s side down. The semi driver was pinned inside and fire crews pulled him from the vehicle.

AeroMed flew the victim to the hospital. His injuries are considered non-life-threatening.

A hazardous materials team was called to the scene to respond to a fuel spill.

Adams Street between 40th Avenue and 32nd Avenue closed for several hours.

Speed, drugs and alcohol are not believed to be factors in the crash.

The crash is under investigation.
