HOLLAND TOWNSHIP (WHTC) - A 23-year-old Hamilton man is recovering from injuries suffered when he crashed his vehicle into another car, and then into a utility pole, causing a traffic signal to come down on Lakewood Boulevard. Ottawa County authorities shut down Lakewood between Beeline Road and North Park Drive for 2-1/2 Wednesday after the crash on Lakewood and Roost Avenue. Authorities say Shawn DeFouw was driving eastbound on Lakewood when he was apparently distracted by his cell phone. When he looked up, the lights had turned red, and DeFouw crashed his car into another vehicle driven by a 46-year-old Holland woman, then struck the utility pole. DeFouw was taken to Holland Hospital with non life-threatening injuries, the other driver was not hurt.
