HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Two men were hospitalized after hitting a front end loader in Holland Twp. around 5:07 a.m. on Sunday.

Ottawa County Sheriff's Deputies found their black 2008 GMC Acadia in a ditch off of Quincy.

The driver, a 35-year-old Holland Twp. resident, did not see the loader doing snow removal in their path.

That loader was driven by a 19-year-old Holland Twp. man.

After the Acadi hit the loader, it ended up in the ditch with the driver pinned inside.

A 40-year-old West Olive resident, who was the passenger of the Acadia, managed to get out with help from deputies, however the driver had to be extricated.

Both were taken to a nearby hospital, although they are expected to be ok.
