On Friday morning, 84-year-old Glenn Schrotenboer lost his life following a single-vehicle accident on US-31.
Officers actively responded to the area of US-31 and Lincoln Avenue at about 8:15 a.m. after getting reports of a car crash. On arrival, responders found a Dodge Caravan that had crashed into a building at Holland Self Storage. The driver, identified as Glenn Schrotenboer, of Holland, was found unconscious.
He was then rushed to the hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
