Two people were transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries Tuesday when their car struck a Rapid bus shortly after 6 p.m.

Prior reports say the car was traveling westbound on Lake Michigan Drive near 14th Avenue in Tallmadge Township when it veered into the eastbound lane and struck the bus head-on.

Capt. Brandon DeHaan of the Grand Valley Police Department said the passengers of the vehicle were transported to the hospital, while the bus driver remained unharmed. DeHaan said the bus was carrying no students and received minor damages.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s department responded to the crash and had no further information.

In spite of the heavy snowfall, GVPD officers had not responded to many crashes as of Wednesday morning, DeHaan said. He added that the sheriff’s office had been responding to more, including one involving a vehicle and Grandville school bus that closed a lane of traffic on Lake Michigan Drive. No children were injured in the crash.
