SARANAC, Mich. — A car crashed into a home in the Village of Saranac.

Ionia County Sheriff’s deputies found a white sedan had crashed into a home near the intersection of Summit Street and Parsonage Street on Wednesday.

Deputies say the car was travelling eastbound on Summit Street near Parsonage Street when it went off the roadway through a yard and struck an electrical box. The vehicle continued over Parsonage Street into another yard, side-swiping a tree and eventually hitting the home.

The vehicle was occupied by the 90-year-old driver and one passenger, both females from Ionia. Deputies say the driver may have suffered a medical emergency prior to the crash. She was transported to Spectrum Hospital in Grand Rapids by Life EMS to be evaluated. The passenger and people inside the home were not hurt.

Saranac Fire and Life EMS assisted on scene.
