TALLMADGE TWP., MI (WHTC) - Before the snows hit the Lakeshore yesterday, a 20-year-old Allendale man, attempting to get in some last-minute skateboarding fun, suffered critical injuries after a SUV hit him. Ottawa County Sheriff’s Sergeant Greg Rotman and fellow deputies were called to Linden Drive near the intersection of Leonard Street, just west of the Ottawa County line, just after 6 PM on Saturday night. Adam Finney was southbound in the roadway when he was struck, apparently from behind, by the GMC Yukon of Jennifer Bruins.
Finney was taken to Spectrum-Butterworth Hospital, while the 28-year-old Bruins of Coopersville was not hurt. Sgt. Rotman added that alcohol didn’t appear to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
