Missaukee County Car vs. Semi Crash Results in Minor Injuries

A driver trying to pass another car on M-55 survived a head-on crash with a semi-truck Tuesday.

Police say the car was heading eastbound on M-55 in Missaukee County and tried to pass a car.

But the driver did not get over fast enough and hit head-on with the semi in the westbound lane.

The driver was the only person inside the car and only had minor injuries.

The semi-truck driver also had minor injuries and neither of them had to go to the hospital.

Police on the scene did have to put down a substance to absorb the leaking fuel from the semi.

Once that is done, the semi can be towed away.
