GRAND RAPIDS — A Greenville woman remains in critical condition almost two weeks after a two-vehicle collision near Gowen.

Darlene Wirtz, 79, is in critical condition at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids. The other occupant in Wirtz’s vehicle, Annette Rendall, 55, of Greenville, has been released from the hospital.

The occupants of the second vehicle, Logan Johnson, 22, of Crystal and Amanda Marsh, 23, of Crystal, have also been released from the hospital.

Michigan State Police Lakeview Post troopers were dispatched at 7:11 a.m. Nov. 28 to the intersection of Sidney and Johnson roads in response to the accident.

A silver Chevrolet Cobalt was traveling westbound on Sidney Road when it collided head-on with a brown Jeep Compass SUV traveling eastbound, also on Sidney Road.

Wirtz and Rendall were in the SUV while Johnson and Marsh were in the Cobalt.

Alcohol was not a factor in the accident. Weather and road conditions also were not factors. All four people involved were wearing seatbelts.

A cause for the accident has not yet been released. The accident remains under investigation.

The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office, Greenville Department of Public Safety, Montcalm Township Fire Department and Montcalm County Emergency Medical Services assisted at the scene.
