Woman recovering after semi hits SUV
KENT COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Whitehall woman is recovering from serious injuries Monday morning after a semi slammed into the back of her SUV.
State police say it appears the woman's SUV broke down in a southbound lane of US-131 near M-6. The semi driver didn't see her until it was too late and slammed into her vehicle.
While her injuries are considered serious, she is expected to recover.
Her child, who was riding with her, escaped with just minor injuries.
"It's quite horrific damage but fortunately the injuries aren't as bad," said Sgt. Aaron Sweeney.
The semi driver was not hurt in the crash.
Troopers had southbound lanes of 131 closed for more than two hours while they investigated and cleaned up the wreckage.
