  Two injured in crash on Maple Island

 A driver and his passenger were both seriously injured on Thursday evening when their vehicle crashed into the back of a big front-end loader on Maple Island Road east of Holton.

Troopers from the Michigan State Police Hart Post reported that the crash occurred on Thursday, Jan. 22 at approximately 6:53 p.m. on Maple Island just south of 60th Street in Holton Township.

According to the state police report, preliminary investigation revealed that a passenger car driven by a male driver was heading south bound on Maple Island Road when it ran into the rear of a large front end loader also headed south. The passenger car slid under the rear of the front end loader, pinning both the driver and the front seat passenger inside the vehicle. No one else was in the vehicle.

Both driver and passenger had to be extricated from the vehicle. They were airlifted to Spectrum Hospital Butterworth in Grand Rapids via AeroMed helicopter. The names of the driver and the passenger, and their condition, had not been released by press time.

Troopers said that the driver of the front end loader, also not named, was uninjured.

The state police report said that it is unknown at this time if speed was a factor in the crash, but troopers said that alcohol may have been a factor. Lighting conditions along with the slow speed of the front-end loader are also believed to have played a role in the crash.

The collision remained under investigation at press time.

Troopers on scene were assisted by Life EMS, the Fremont Fire Department, the Fremont Police Department, the Newaygo County Sheriff Department and AeroMed.
