Police in Mecosta County believe speed and alcohol where factors in a car crash Monday night in Green Township.
It happened just after 6:30pm on 230th Ave approximately 1/2 Mile North of 19 Mile Rd.
Mecosta County Sheriff Deputies say an investigation revealed that a 31-year old man from Evart was traveling Southbound on 230th Ave, and when his pickup truck crested a hill, another vehicle was starting up on the roadway also traveling Southbound.
The driver of the truck avoided striking the car but lost control and crashed into trees and a fence.
The 31-year old driver was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
