GRAND HAVEN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A man is in critical condition after a bad crash late Wednesday night.

Deputies in Ottawa County say 25-year-old Justin Carr was driving northbound on 144th Avenue near Buchanan Street when he crossed the center line.

His car ended up going into a ditch, striking an embankment before going airborne and hitting a tree, according to officials.

Carr was pinned in the vehicle until a passerby could pull him out moments before the car caught fire.

He was flown to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital by AeroMed in critical condition and deputies say he may have not been wearing his seatbelt.
