FERRY TOWNSHIP — Speed is believed to be a factor in a rollover crash on 144th Avenue near M 20 Friday morning, Sept. 22, that injured a 33-year-old Ferry woman, according to Oceana County Sheriff’s Deputy Brandon Knoll.

The woman, who was the sole occupant of an older-model Chevrolet Nova, was transported by Oceana County EMS to a Muskegon hospital, Knoll said.

The woman was driving too fast and lost control on the dirt road, Knoll said. She was northbound, and the car rolled over when it crashed into the ditch on the west side of the road near the Leisure Haven Camping entrance.

It was not immediately known if the woman was wearing a seat belt.

She received minor injuries in the crash, Knoll said, including a cut to her her head. She was also complaining of neck and shoulder pain. She was able to free herself from the wreckage and get out on her own.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash, which occurred at approximately 10:30 a.m.

In addition to Oceana County EMS, Ferry Township Fire Department also assisted the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office at the scene.
