Woman, 18, has no feeling from the shoulders down following dune crash.

GOLDEN TOWNSHIP — An 18-year-old Big Rapids woman “was unable to feel anything from the shoulders down” following a rollover crash at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes Friday, July 30, shortly before 7:30 p.m., according to an Oceana County Sheriff’s Office accident report.

The woman was a passenger in a 1985 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by a 19-year-old Standwood man, who was not injured in the crash.

He was driving up a sand hill “at a high rate of speed,” the report states. “Upon cresting the sand hill, (he) lost control of the vehicle, overturning the vehicle and impacting the embankment below. Both the driver and the passenger were pinned in the vehicle to start. The driver was eventually able to get out of the vehicle without assistance from fire/EMS. The passenger was extricated by Hart Fire (Department) and transported to Mercy Hospital in Muskegon.”
