FERRYSBURG, MI (WHTC) - A SUV filled with five persons from the Holland area was apparently trying to head north on Saturday afternoon but didn’t make it too far beyond the Grand Haven drawbridge. According to authorities, the vehicle was going northbound on US-31 when, just past Ridge Street in Ferrysburg, it swerved to avoid striking a wild turkey that had wandered onto the roadway. The SUV then lost control and rolled down an embankment, ejecting the unbuckled 21-year-old driver in the process. The other four passengers were belted in, with three of them, a 19-year-old woman, a 15-year-old girl, and a three-year-old boy, along with the driver, all taken to North Ottawa Community Hospital for treatment of non-life threating injuries. A 10-year-old boy was not hurt. No names were disclosed, and no tickets were issued, as the incident remains under investigation.
