3 Car Crash in Free Soil Township

An Onekama man is in the hospital after a three car crash in Free Soil Township. 

The Mason County Press reports, the accident happened around 3pm, yesterday, on North US-31. 84-year-old, Kenneth Graves, of Muskegon, hit Free Soil resident, 62-year-old, Ruth Kovach, as she was heading south on US-31. This caused Kovach's vehicle to enter north-bound traffic and striking 21-year-old Thomas Koon, of Onekama. Grant Township fire had to use the Jaws of Life to remove Koon from his vehicle, which landed in a ditch. Koon was then transported to Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids by Aeromed, where he is currently in stable condition. The woman was taken to West Shore Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The Muskegon man did not suffer any injuries. The Mason County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the accident.
