Crashes mar morning commute; two injured

(WZZM) Three vehicles were involved in a morning crash in northern Kent County.

The crash happened at the intersection of Seven Mile Road and Fruitridge Avenue.

Police on the scene tell our crew that an SUV traveling west on Seven Mile ran the stop sign at the corner of Fruitridge Avenue striking a vehicle.  That vehicle was then pushed into a third vehicle.

All the people involved in the crash refused medical treatment.

Another crash with injuries took place about the same time at 68th Avenue and Leonard Street near Coopersville. 

Police say 54-year-old Robert Hill, Jr. was driving north on 68th Avenue when he crossed the center line and hit a box truck, and then another truck head on.  Hill, and the driver of the other pick up, 25 year old Kurt Zwak of Coopersville, were both pinned in their vehicles.  Firefighters from Coopersville and Allendale extricated the men from their vehicles.

They have since been taken to Spectrum Butterworth with serious injuries. The driver of the box truck was not hurt.

Also on the M-6 in Ottawa County, a truck lost an axle which then damaged four cars.  No one was hurt.
