OLIVE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Four people were injured in a serious crash involving two vehicles and 10 occupants after a teenager ran a stop sign at midday Sunday.

At 11:16 a.m. Sunday, the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash with injuries at the intersection of 144th Avenue and Tyler Street in Olive Township. The investigation revealed that an 18-year-old Holland resident was westbound on Tyler in a Ford F150 pickup truck when the driver failed to stop for a stop sign, drove into the path of a Chevrolet transport van driven by a 26-year-old West Olive resident and the two collided.

The truck hit the van's passenger door, the impact forced both vehicles off the roadway, the van rolled over and landed on its side.

The truck's driver and a passenger were seriously injured and were transported to Holland Community Hospital. The van's driver and a passenger also were taken to Holland Community Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The van also contained six other occupants who were not injured.

The incident remains under investigation by the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office.
