Two people seriously injured in three-vehicle dune crash.

GOLDEN TOWNSHIP — Two people were taken to the hospital for serious injuries following a three-vehicle crash on Test Hill at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes Wednesday afternoon, June 16.

A 24-year-old Casnovia, Michigan man operating a 2021 Polaris “jumped the crest at a high rate of speed,” states an accident report from the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office. “Per witness statements, (the Polaris) became airborne and dipped its front end heavy.” 

The Polaris struck two vehicles and “rolled over end on top of both drivers,” states the report.

Seriously injured were a 34-year-old Conowingo, Maryland man on a 2005 Honda 250 dirt bike and a 15-year-old Conowingo, Maryland boy on a 2005 Honda 250EX quad.

They were parked on the backside of the small ridge prior to Test Hill, because the quad was broken down.

Both the man and the boy were transported by Life EMS to Mercy Health Partners in Muskegon. 

The crash occurred around 12:30 p.m.

The Polaris driver received minor injuries and did not require hospitalization, according to the report.
