2 hospitalized after crash in US-31 backup
FERRYSBURG, Mich. — Two people were hospitalized Friday after a three-vehicle crash on US-31 in Ottawa County.
It happened around 5:20 p.m. on US-31 near Ridge Street in Ferrysburg.
Authorities said a car going south on the highway didn’t stop in time for traffic that had backed up due to a malfunction with the drawbridge over the Grand River.
The southbound car collided with an SUV that was in traffic, sending it into a third car.
The drivers of the first and third vehicles were taken to an area hospital with injuries that weren’t considered to be life-threatening.
