Allendale, MI (November 28, 2021) – On Sunday, November 28th, Ottawa County Sheriff’s officials responded to the scene when the driver of a Dodge Avenger struck a tree and then fled, leaving behind the car and a seriously injured 19-year-old woman from Flint.
At about 3:40 a.m. deputies were dispatched to the scene at West Campus Drive, in the area of 48th Avenue in Allendale Township. Upon their arrival, they determined the driver lost control on an icy patch of the roadway causing the Avenger to hit a tree.
The driver then fled on foot.

Passenger Injuries in Michigan
It is not unusual for a passenger to be injured in a car accident. The AAA Foundation For Traffic Safety stated that the number of passenger injuries and deaths is actually about 50% greater than the rate of driver injuries and deaths. An extensive study was conducted based on driver age and the rate of deaths and injuries for every 100 million miles driven.
Passenger injury claims can be very complicated and are challenging to win due to complex insurance laws. Oftentimes, the driver of the vehicle is the victim’s relative or friend and they are reluctant to file a claim and cause their insurance rates to rise.
