2 people injured in rollover crash near Coopersville

COOPERSVILLE, MICH. - Westbound I-96 was closed for less than an hour following a two-car crash in Ottawa County.

Crews were called just before 8:40 a.m. Tuesday, May 9, for the crash at the 68th Avenue exit.

An investigation shows a car driven by 25-year-old Jordan Carmona was heading west on I-96 when he did not see traffic slowing for road construction, according to an Ottawa County Sheriff's Office news release.

Carmona hit the vehicle ahead of him, which was driven by 30-year-old Katherine Wilbur. The impact caused her vehicle to roll, police say.

Wilbur was taken to an area hospital with serious injuries, while Carmona received only minor injuries. Police cited Carmona for failing to stop within assured clear distance.

The highway reopened to traffic around 9:25 a.m.
