SIDNEY TOWNSHIP — A Stanton woman was airlifted to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital on Friday afternoon after sustaining serious but nonlife-threatening injuries after a two-car crash on M-66, just north of Holland Lake Road.
Troopers from the Michigan State Police Lakeview post are investigating the accident, which occurred at 2:05 p.m. when a vehicle traveling northbound on M-66 lost control, crossed the center line and collided with a southbound vehicle.
A 38-year-old Stanton woman, the lone occupant of the southbound vehicle, was pinned in. M-66 was closed for nearly two hours while emergency crews worked to free the driver. She was then taken via AeroMed to Butterworth.
A 19-year-old male from Kentwood was the lone occupant of the northbound vehicle. He was treated and released at the scene. Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor in the crash. The crash remains under investigation.
Findings will be forwarded to the Montcalm County Prosecutor’s Office. Names of the drivers have not been released.
Assistance at the accident scene was provided by the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office, AeroMed, Sheridan Fire Department, Montcalm County Ambulance, Belt’s Towing and Safety First Towing.
