HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Slippery conditions are blamed for an accident In Holland Township, where an SUV slid into a water-filled ditch on 128th Avenue near Caryn Way. Emergency crews had to rescue two women and infant trapped inside.
Around 2 p.m. Tuesday, investigators say the driver got caught in the slush and lost control of the vehicle.
A mother, her 10 month-old son, and her friend were trapped in the vehicle until emergency crews could extricate them. Deputies say water was leaking in through the windows of the SUV.
First, rescuers focused on getting the baby out of its car seat.
"The infant was definitely the first priority; it was strapped properly in a car restraint which assisted us and helped so the parents were just able to lift him straight up and out to us," says Sergeant Brent Converse, with the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department.
