ALBION TOWNSHIP (AP) - West Michigan police say a 2-year-old boy suffered serious injuries and his father also was hurt when the dirt-bike they were riding collided with a four-wheeler driven by the child’s grandfather.

Calhoun County Sheriff officials say the two off-road vehicles crashed at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

They say a 47-year-old Albion man was driving a four-wheeler when it collided with a dirt bike being driven by his son, a 29-year-old Battle Creek man.

The collision caused the Battle Creek man to lose control of the dirt bike, throwing him and his 2-year-old son.

The 29-year-old man and his son were treated at hospitals. None of the unidentified riders was wearing a helmet.

No further details were released.

Authorities haven’t determined whether charges will be filed, pending completion of an investigation.
