[ARCHIVED] Serious Car Deer accident

***UPDATE October 24, 2023***

The front seat passenger of the Toyota has died as a result of injuries sustained in the accident. She is identified as Georgianne Covelli of Wyoming. 

Her husband, Kelly Covelli, was the driver of the Toyota. He has been released from the hospital.

The accident remains under investigation.


This morning at about 7:30 a.m. officers and firefighters of the Holland DPS responded to the area of the 46 mm on I-196 for a report of an injury crash.

First responders located a vehicle which had crashed into a commercial building at 80 W 64th St. Suite 200.

Preliminary investigation indicates that the vehicle, a 2020 Toyota Camry, had been travelling on West I-196 when it struck a deer. The deer impacted and went through the windshield into the passenger compartment, striking both passengers inside the vehicle. The vehicle then went off the roadway, through the right-of-way fence and came to a rest after impacting the building.

Paramedics from AMR transported both passengers to Holland Hospital. Both were later transferred to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital.

The driver is a 55 year old man and the passenger is a 60 year old female, both from the city of Wyoming.

It does not appear at this time that either alcohol or speed were a factor.
