HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Deputies say a driver who ran a red light apparently caused an Ottawa County collision that left a five-year-old boy injured.

It happened around 4:15 p.m. Wednesday at Chicago Drive and 112th Avenue in Holland Township.

Zachary Oudman, 23, of Wyoming, was driving his  2000 Chevy pickup truck westbound on Chicago Drive.  Aimee Riemersma, 26, of Holland, was westbound in her 2001 Jeep Cherokee and was making a left turn to go north on 112th.  Deputies say Riemersma was turning with a green arrow light, but Oudman failed to stop for the westbound red light, leading to the crash.

Riemersma's five-year-old son Aidan was injured in the collision.  He is in serious condition at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital in Grand Rapids.  Riemersma's one-year-old son, Axel, was not hurt in the crash.  Both children were in proper restraint seats.

Aimee Riemersma suffered minor injuries, as did Zachary Oudman.  They were treated at the scene.

Deputies say alcohol was not a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
