HART — Three people were transported by Life EMS to area hospitals following a two-vehicle crash Tuesday, June 16, around 11 a.m. on Polk Road in front of Hansen Foods grocery store, according to Hart Police Chief Juan Salazar.

A 57-year-old Pentwater woman was taken to Mercy Health Partners Hackley Campus in Muskegon for a non-life-threatening arm injury, and a 1-year-old Pentwater boy and a 20-year-old Pentwater woman were taken to MHP Lakeshore Campus in Shelby for minor injuries, Chief Salazar said.

The three who were injured were passengers in a Chevrolet Avalanche that was westbound on Polk Road. A 2011 Ford Escape attempted to turn east out of the grocery store parking lot when the collision occurred, Salazar said. The Escape was driven by an 18-year-old Bridgeport, Michigan woman who was cited for failure to yield. A 49-year-old Bridgeport woman was a passenger in the Escape. Neither were injured.

The Avalanche was driven by a 40-year-old Bear Lake woman who also was not injured. A fourth passenger in her vehicle was also not hurt, Salazar said.

Hart Area Fire Department and Life EMS assisted at the scene.
