HAMLIN TOWNSHIP — A 20-year-old woman (age has been corrected from previous post) was seriously injured following a single vehicle crash on North Lakeshore Drive near Jagger Road Wednesday night. Emergency personnel were called to the scene at 9:43 p.m.

Witness Al Geist said he and his wife, Teri Wilson, watched the car travel south on Lakeshore Drive and then went down the side of the road into some trees about 200 feet from the Lincoln Hills Golf Club entrance. The car struck a tree and was in “thick brush,” Geist said. He turned his vehicle around and went back to the scene while his wife called 911. Geist said at that point another vehicle had also stopped to render aid. Officers from Ludington Police Department were the first on the scene.

Geist said he did not see anyone else in the vehicle. Law enforcement personnel were searching for a “boyfriend’s” vehicle. The victim was transported to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital and Aeromed helicopter was called to the hospital to transport her to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids.

Responding to the scene were Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Ludington Police Department, Hamlin Township Fire Department, Ludington Fire Department and Life EMS.

The crash is still being investigated. More information will be posted when available.
