SPARTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. – The Kent County Sheriff says one person suffered serious injuries in a crash on 13 Mile Road Friday morning.

Deputies say a 30-year-old Grand Rapids man driving north on Alpine Avenue turned in front of an eastbound Jeep onto 13 Mile Road. The Jeep hit the man’s vehicle and pushed into a Kent County Road Commission truck that was waiting on 13 Mile Road to turn onto southbound Alpine.

The man was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the Jeep, a 23-year-old Sparta woman, suffered minor injuries.  The driver of the truck was not hurt.

Deputies say speed and alcohol were not factors in the crash. Everyone was wearing their seatbelts.
