GOLDEN TOWNSHIP — A 67-year-old Mears woman was injured following a two vehicle crash at the intersection of Harrison Road and 60th Avenue Wednesday, July 4.

The crash occurred about 2:16 p.m. when a 2006 Kia driven by Jordan Barefoot, 16, of Twin Lake, was struck by a 2005 Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by James Jacques, 70, of Mears after Barefoot failed to yield the right-of-way, according to a report from Oceana County Sheriff’s Office.
