TALLMADGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A man died nearly two weeks after being involved in a nearly head-on collision in Ottawa County.

Deputies in Ottawa County say Michael Pater from Grand Rapids died Wednesday. His vehicle crashed into another the afternoon of September 13. Deputies then said Pater was traveling north on 8th Avenue near County Lane Drive when a 17-year-old boy from Marne turned left in front of his vehicle.

The teen was also hospitalized.

The investigation is going to be turned over to the prosecutor’s office to see if upcoming charges are appropriate.
