SPRING LAKE TOWNSHIP, MI (WHTC) -- A single vehicle accident late Saturday night sent a 39-year-old Spring Lake Township man to Hackley Hospital. Ottawa County Sheriff Sgt. Christie Wendt says the accident happened just before midnight. The driver was northbound on Spring Lake Rd near Taft St. The vehicle went off the road, hitting a mail box, a power pole and a tree. The driver was pinned in the vehicle and had to be extricated by Spring Lake Township Fire Rescue. Wendt says the man was not wearing a seatbelt and that both speed and alcohol were a factor in the accident. The man is listed in stable condition. His name is being withheld as the investigation continues.
