Woman Seriously Injured in Accident with Semi-truck on US-31 in Grand Haven Township, Michigan

Grand Haven Township, Mich. — A woman sustained serious injuries in a collision with a semi-truck on north of Hayes Street.

The incident happened Thursday night when a semi-truck attempted to navigate south via the turnaround when the trailer was struck by a woman driving a Hyundai.

No further details have been provided.

Thoughts on turns and semi-trucks

What a horrible accident. Our thoughts are with the injured lady, and we hope she fully recovers. Colliding with a semi-truck is scary and can have devastating consequences. Because large trucks triumph in size on the road, they have to practice extreme caution when making turns.

Eighteen-wheelers require careful maneuvering, especially when making turns. When truck drivers lack experience or are distracted, they easily make common mistakes while turning, including failure to use turn signals, entering another vehicle’s lane, or neglecting to ensure the road is clear before initiating a turn. Not using mirrors to spot other cars or pedestrians in blind spots, turning too quickly, or allowing the trailer to swing out too wide can also contribute to serious accidents.

When truckers cause accidents due to inexperience or negligence, they, along with the trucking company they work for, should be held accountable. The consequences of such incidents can be severe, resulting in life-altering injuries and significant emotional and financial burdens for the injured and their families.

Only a thorough investigation can determine what caused this incident with the Hyundai. Trained professionals need to examine what happened to hold any negligent parties accountable.

May justice for any wrongdoing be served.
