TALLMADGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (June 19, 2014) — A 17-year-old male has been killed in a head-on car accident that happened late Wednesday night in Ottawa County.

According to police, the crash occurred on 8th Avenue just north of Lincoln in Tallmadge Township right around 10:45 p.m.  The 17-year-old was driving south when his Oldsmobile crossed the center line and crashed head-on into an SUV.

The victim was pinned inside the vehicle, and when crews arrived and got him out, he was pronounced dead at the scene.  His identity is not being released at this time.

The driver of the SUV suffered some broken bones, and a front seat passenger was not injured.

Both drivers were wearing their seat belts, and alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this accident.
