The Ionia County Sheriff’s Office responded to a three-vehicle crash on west bound I-96 west of Jordan Lake road early Friday morning.
Deputies say a 2015 Mercedes Benz driven by a 25-year-old man from Rockford was traveling west on I-96 when he approached an Ionia County Road Dept. truck plowing in the left lane. The driver attempted to slow down, which caused his car to slide into the side of a semi-truck-tractor driven by a 52-year-old Fowlerville man. That impact and collision then caused the Mercedes to run into the rear of the Plow Truck.
The driver of the Mercedes was treated and released with minor injuries. The drivers of the Ionia Road Department Truck and the semi-truck were uninjured.
The Ionia County Sheriff’s Office reminds motorists that regardless of weather conditions it is the motorist’s responsibility to always keep their vehicle under control, and speed should be reduced on slippery roads.
