TALLMADGE TOWNSHIP, MICH. - A Grand Rapids man’s condition was unknown following a one-car crash early Sunday morning in the area of Luce Street near 24th Avenue.
Prem Patel, 29, was driving a 2011 BMW Sedan east on Luce Street, went off the road, struck a ditch, went airborne and rolled, said Sgt. Bob Ruster of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.
The car landed upside down in the field and was discovered at about 7 a.m.
Patel was pinned inside the vehicle. An ambulance transported him to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids once firefighters extricated him.
Patel was semi-conscious when emergency crews arrived, Ruster said. He suffered head and neck injuries.
It is unknown whether or not he was wearing a seatbelt, Ruster said.
The vehicle was cold and police believe the crash occurred several hours before the car was found.
