An investigation continues today into the head-on crash in Hillsdale County that killed a truck driver Tuesday afternoon.

Michigan State Police troopers were called to M-49, just south of the Jonesville Road intersection just before 4:00 p.m.

They found a semi-tractor trailer driven by Michael Fink, 74, from Jonesville was driving south on M-49 when it lost control and crossed the center line.

That truck collided head-on into another semi tractor-trailer driven by a 62-year old Litchfield man heading north.

Fink died at the scene and the other man was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released.
