PLAINFIELD TWP., Mich. -- One person is in serious condition Friday morning following a two-car accident in Kent County, that shut down the area to traffic while police investigated.
It happened shortly before 6:30 a.m. in the area of Jupiter and West River Drive in Plainfield Township. Police say a silver car being driven by a 19-year-old man crossed the center line, hitting a red pickup truck head-on. That truck flipped over, and the driver had to be extricated from the vehicle.
The victim was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but was later upgraded to serious condition. The driver of the silver car was checked out at the scene and was released. His car ended up in a ditch.
Police say they are looking at a phone they believe may have distracted the driver. The investigation is still ongoing.
