COURTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A woman was killed when a semi-truck crashed into her SUV in Courtland Township Saturday afternoon, Michigan State Police said.

It hit an eastbound SUV head-on. The 53-year-old driver was killed on scene, MSP said.

A passenger was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries, according to troopers.

The roadway was closed after the crash for investigation and clean up.
