Olive Twp, MI (January 25, 2022) – One person was injured following a multi-vehicle accident in Olive Township on Tuesday morning, January 25. The crash was reported at the intersection of 120th Avenue and Taylor Street at around 7:30 a.m.
The roadways were icy at the time of the collision. A vehicle driven by a 24-year-old Commerce Township man was unable to stop and rear-ended another car driven by a 63-year-old Allendale woman. The impact caused the woman’s vehicle to spin into oncoming traffic where it hit two other cars.
The Commerce Township man continued on the roadway where it hit a fifth vehicle. The Allendale woman was taken to a local hospital for the treatment of sustained injuries. No other information has been provided.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the accident is underway.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and her family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.

Injured plaintiffs must make the right decisions in the moments following an accident in order to maximize the value of their damage claim. Following a serious accident, many victims are unaware of how to obtain the compensation they require. They may feel isolated and befuddled as a result of this. When injured people try to fight a big insurance company on their own, they frequently run into roadblocks and other issues. This only adds to the already stressful and frustrating situation.
