Fruitport Township Police Department Investigating Car-Bicycle Crash

At approximately 9:44 p.m. on Monday, August 18, 2014, emergency units responded to the 2000 block of E. Broadway Ave. in Fruitport Township for a personal injury crash involving a car and a bicycle.

A 20-year-old male bicyclist was struck by a vehicle driven by a 25-year-old male. Both involved parties are from the Muskegon County area. Fruitport Township Fire Department, Fruitport Township Police Department, and ProMed Ambulance responded to the scene.

The driver of the car was not injured. The bicyclist was transported from the scene by ProMed Ambulance to be treated for multiple injuries sustained in the crash. The bicyclist was later air-lifted to Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids. He is currently in stable condition at that location.
