On Tuesday afternoon, three people suffered injuries following a multi-vehicle wreck near Holland.
As per the initial information, the three-vehicle pile-up took place at about 4 p.m. on Riley Street at Sunrise Avenue, east of 120th Avenue, in Holland Township. The preliminary investigation showed that a 44-year-old Holland man was traveling east on Riley when he failed to maintain control of his car, causing it to crash into two westbound vehicles head-on.
A 72-year-old Holland man and his 48-year-old passenger from one of the cars that was struck and the 26-year-old Grand Rapids man that was driving the other vehicle were all transported to the hospital with non-fatal injuries. The 44-year-old who was driving the eastbound car remained unharmed. Speed is believed to have contributed to the accident. A stretch of Riley Street was shut down as crews worked at the scene, but later reopened. No other details are available.
An investigation is continuing.
