WRIGHT TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office says a 29-year-old Coopersville man was taken by ambulance to a hospital after his truck went off a road near Marne and struck a tree.
It happened around 5:25 p.m. Friday at Berlin Fair Drive and 24th Avenue.

Elzinga was transported to the hospital by LIFE Ambulance, with “non-life threatening” injuries, according to the Sheriff’s Office, which says it’s still investigating the cause.
