JAMESTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Police responded to a personal injury accident involving two vehicles Wednesday evening.

The crash happened on Eighth Avenue near Quincy Street, according to the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.

They say a semi tractor and trailer, driven by a 38-year-old from Grandville, turned onto a driveway on Eighth Avenue when they were hit by an 88-year-old driver from Byron Center.

Police say the driver of the semi was uninjured in the incident, but the 88-year-old and his 82-year-old passenger sustained non-life-threatening injuries. They were later taken to Metro Hospital.

Eighth Avenue was shut down for an hour and a half for the semi to be removed, according to authorities.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash, which is currently under investigation.
