LAKEVIEW — Two women were injured in an accident on M-46 in Lakeview on Wednesday afternoon.
A Lakeview police officer reported the accident to Montcalm County Central Dispatch around 12:15 p.m. in front of the Mobil gas station and Dollar General on M-46 just east of M-91.
Lakeview Police Chief Darin Dood said the accident happened when a Dodge Dynasty driven by Maxine Edgerly, in her 80s, from Lakeview, was heading east on M-46 when she turned left into the Mobil and Dollar General driveway in front of a westbound Dodge Neon driven by Morgan Saxton, in her 30s, from Mount Pleasant.
Montcalm County Emergency Medical Services transported both women to Spectrum Health Kelsey Hospital in Lakeview.
Edgerly was then transferred to Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids.
M-46 was shut down for about an hour while police investigated the accident and rescue workers cleaned up the scene.
The Lakeview District Fire Department also assisted at the scene.
