SUBJECT OF RELEASE: Three car, personal injury crash

DATE AND TIME: Friday, June 16, 2017 at approximately 5:05 P.M.

LOCATION: The intersection of Howard City-Edmore Road (M-46) and Edgar Road, Reynolds Township

AUTHORITY/CONTACT PERSON: Sheriff Michael Williams

The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office responded to a three car, personal injury crash at the intersection of Howard City-Edmore Road (M-46) and Edgar Road in Reynolds Township at approximately 5:05 P.M. on Friday, June 16, 2017.

Through the investigation, the Sheriff’s Deputy determined that a 2008 Subaru Outback was stopped at the stop sign on Edgar Road at Howard City-Edmore Road (M-46) and proceeded into the intersection to head west when it was struck by an east bound 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche. The near head-on collision pushed the Subaru into the path of a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer headed west on Howard City-Edmore Road (M-46).

Joseph Hondalus, aged 56 from Howard City, was driving the Subaru, and both he and his female passenger were transported to Spectrum Hospital in Grand Rapids by the Montcalm County Emergency Medical Services for serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Johnathan Little, aged 43 from Crystal, was driving the Chevrolet Avalanche and sustained very minor injuries. He received treatment at the scene, and his female passenger was not injured.

Christopher Conger, aged 37 from Big Rapids, was complaining of pain and refused medical treatment.

The crash remains under investigation. All of the occupants were properly belted and airbags deployed in each of the vehicles.

In addition to the Montcalm County Emergency Medical Services units, the Howard City Fire Department and the Michigan State Police assisted at the scene.
