One person has died and another is in bad shape after a crash in northern Kent County.
Michigan State Police say 39-year-old Joseph Hanna from Sparta, was driving eastbound on 14 Mile Road when he tried to pass another car driven by 48-year-old Jerry Kinsey of Spring Lake and crashed.
Troopers say both cars spun out of control and into the westbound lane near Wabasis Avenue and Kinsey's vehicle collided with a third driver. Kinsey's passenger, his 20-year-old son Joel, died. Joel Kinsey was actively serving in the U.S. Marine Corps.
It happened just before 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 4. Jerry Kinsey remains in critical condition.
State police don't believe speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
