SPRING LAKE TWP., Mich. — Two men from Muskegon are hospitalized with serious injuries after an accident pinned them in their vehicle.

The accident happened on 148th Avenue south of Kelly Street in Spring Lake Township just after midnight Saturday.

Deputies say a 23-year-old man was driving southbound on 148th Avenue when he drifted off the road and into the ditch. The Jeep Grand Cherokee they were in then hit a raised driveway and went airborne before hitting two trees. The crash caused both people to be pinned in the car. The man and 24-year-old passenger were eventually extricated. Deputies say both were wearing seatbelts.

The crash remains under investigation by the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.
