HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. — US-31 was closed Tuesday morning after a crash broke a power pole and disabled traffic signals near Felch Street in Holland Township.
Deputies from the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office responded shortly after 9 a.m. to the two-car crash, according to a news release.
Their preliminary investigation showed a 20-year-old Holland Township woman was driving a 2014 Toyota sedan eastbound on Felch Street and didn’t stop for a red light at US-31.
The Toyota was hit by a northbound 2007 Jeep SUV that was being driven by a 25-year-old woman from Holland, the sheriff’s office said.
After the collision, the Toyota hit and broke a power pole, causing electrical lines to fall into the roadway and disabled power to nearby traffic signals.
Both north- and southbound lanes were closed while Consumers Energy removed the lines.
Deputies say the driver of the Toyota wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and was taken to Holland Hospital with a head injury.
Meanwhile, the driver of the Jeep was wearing a seatbelt and was transported to Holland Hospital to be evaluated for injury.
Crews continued to remove power lines from the roadway as of 11 a.m.
