One person hospitalized after truck crashes into elementary school

PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, MICH. - One person was taken to the hospital after a truck crashed into an elementary school in the Northview Public Schools district.

The Kent County Sheriff's Department received the call around 10 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20. Deputies found a pick up truck smashed into the side of North Oakview Elementary on Costa Avenue. Plainfield Township firefighters had to help free the person from the truck.

Deputies haven't said yet who the driver was, but that person was taken to DeVos Children's Hospital and may have been drinking before the crash. It's not clear how badly the driver was hurt. There was no one else inside the truck at the time.

The principal says school will resume Thursday morning, but that particular classroom will be closed.
