Zeeland, MI (January 22, 2022) – A collision in Zeeland involving two trucks resulted in the injury of an Illinois man on Friday night, January 21. The accident took place on Interstate 196 near Byron Road at around 11 p.m.
A man is believed to have suffered a medical issue and sideswiped a semi-truck. A man from Mount Pleasant, Illinois was driving a box truck when he sideswiped a 2004 Freightliner semi-truck headed eastbound. The box truck then overturned in the median.
The Illinois man was transported to Zeeland hospital for the treatment of sustained injuries. No further information has been released at this time.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the semi-truck crash is underway.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
Semi-Truck Crashes in Michigan
The majority of freight in the United States is transported by commercial trucks, and these massive vehicles can endanger passengers in passenger cars. According to national accident statistics, smaller vehicle occupants are more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries in the event of a collision. Every year, over 500,000 trucking accidents are reported, resulting in thousands of deaths.
Semi-trucks are involved in a significant number of fatal car accidents across the country, including here in Michigan. The statistics speak for themselves, and Tucking collisions are extremely dangerous, especially when smaller passenger vehicles are involved. Even the most experienced trucker can make a critical error on the road, resulting in a catastrophic 18-wheeler accident, despite the fact that rig operators are required to prioritize safety.
