The crash involved a white Pontiac Grand Prix, a red Pontiac Vibe and  a Ford truck. The driver of the red Pontiac Vibe had to be extricated from the car with the jaws of life.

The two northbound lanes were temporarily closed while crews worked at the scene. The Michigan State Police helped to divert traffic on S. 11th Street throughout that process.
