Park Township police investigate double-fatal crash

Drivers who ignore stop signs, drive while impaired or allow their eyes to wander from the road act irresponsibly. Results of negligence sink in when a driver's carelessness turns to tragedy. Victims of inattentive, hasty or drunk drivers may be severely injured, permanently disabled or die.

An Ottawa County car accident recently claimed the lives of two men thought to be in their 20s. In the moments before the crash, the driver of the Plymouth Duster ran a stop sign. Four people were in the vehicle. The men who were killed were ejected as the vehicle smashed into a car on Riley Street in Park Township.

The men ejected from the Duster were backseat passengers. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. The remaining two occupants, including the driver, were not hurt. Both wore seatbelts.

The Plymouth was traveling northbound along North 168th Avenue. Three females in a second car were headed eastbound on Riley Street. Police said the women were not seriously injured in the accident. All three were released after treatment for minor injuries.

A witness said the engine of one of the vehicles caught fire.

Ottawa County sheriff's deputies are continuing to examine the details leading up to and during the Sunday afternoon two-vehicle accident. Victims' names and ages were withheld. Officials did not speculate on whether they thought the Plymouth driver was driving too fast, distracted from the road or impaired.

No charges have been filed, although it is likely the driver of the Plymouth could be cited for failure to stop at a posted sign. The loss of two lives could drive up the severity of the charges, if the double fatal accident is found to be the result of driver negligence.

Authorities gave no indication whether the Plymouth driver was tested for sobriety at the scene or later. It is unknown when the investigation is expected to conclude.
