ALLENDALE TOWNSHIP, Mich.  —  Police and paramedics were on the scene of an injury accident late Saturday night, just northeast of Grand Valley State University.

At 9:49 p.m., responders were called to Lake Michigan Drive/M-45 at 40th Avenue on a report of a two-vehicle crash. The location is right on the Allendale/Allendale Township line. Lake Michigan Drive was still down to one lane of traffic as of 11 p.m. Saturday, but the crash had cleared by 11:20 p.m.

In a press release, the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office said 22-year-old Jordain Davis was riding a moped westbound on Lake Michigan Dr.

She was hit by 22-year-old Samantha Stoddard, who was driving a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu in the same lane.

Deputies say Davis was wearing a helmet at the time of the incident but was taken to the hospital in stable condition. Stoddard was not injured in the crash.

Police said the driver of the car apparently did not see the moped until it was too late. Police say no intoxication was involved.

The case is still under investigation.
