On 12-9-17 deputies from the Ionia County Sheriff’s Office responded to a rollover accident involving one vehicle. While responding to the scene the deputies were advised there were two occupants and one occupant was trapped under the vehicle.
Through investigation it was determined that a Chrysler Town and Country van, driven by a 79 year old woman from Lake Odessa, had lost control of her vehicle while maneuvering the corner on Tupper Lake Rd at Jackson Rd. While trying to correct her vehicle, the driver slid onto the south shoulder of the road before over correcting and sliding sideways across the center of the road. The van then struck the ditch on the north side of the road and overturned onto the passenger side.
As a result of the collision the passenger, her 80 year old husband, was partially trapped under the passenger side door. Both parties were extricated and transported to Spectrum Butterworth hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
Assisting on scene by Lake Odessa Police Department, Lake Odessa Fire Department, Clarksville Fire Department, Reed and Hoppes Towing, Life EMS, and Ionia County Central Dispatch. Speed was a factor.
