GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A driver was taken to the hospital Wednesday morning after a head-on crash on an Ottawa County overpass.

The crash happened around 7:58 a.m. on the Kenowa overpass to I-196 in Georgetown Township.

Authorities said a driver lost control of their pickup truck while going south on the overpass and crossed the center line, causing a collision with a southbound truck.

The trucks came to rest against a guardrail and trapped one of the drivers inside. They were freed from their vehicle and didn’t suffer any injuries.

The other driver was taken to the hospital with injuries that weren’t life-threatening.
