Tree falls across road, causes motorcycle crash

TALLMADGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Two people riding a motorcycle were injured after a Friday evening crash.

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Department says Timothy and Eileen VerStrate of Grand Rapids were riding on Lovers Lane near 14th Ave. around 7:50 p.m. Friday when a tree fell in front of them, blocking the road.

Ottawa County's Sgt. Kristy Wendt says Timothy VerStrate was driving. He hit the tree and went off the right side of the road, into a ditch.

The VerStrates had non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to a Grand Rapids hospital.

Wright Township firefighters cleared the tree out of the road, which reopened within 30 minutes.
