ALLENDALE, MI (WHTC) - A 60-year-old Holland woman tried to get around a turning truck yesterday afternoon and got into an accident south of Allendale. According to Ottawa County Sheriff’s Sergeant Dean DeVries, Joan Baumann was driving westbound on Fillmore Street and attempted to swerve around the semi ahead of her that was turning right onto 68th Avenue, while Kayla Kempenaar was turning left from 68th onto Fillmore Street and slammed into Baumann’s vehicle. The force of the broadside collision drove Baumann's vehicle off of the roadway, causing it to roll over and land on its side adjacent to a tree. Rescue crews had to extricate Baumann, and she was taken to Holland Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Kempenaar, whose age and hometown wasn’t disclosed, suffered no ailments. The crash remains under investigation.
