VALLEY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man was seriously injured after crashing with a semitruck head-on near Allegan Wednesday.

The crash happened around 9 a.m. on M-40 in Valley Township.

A man was driving southbound in the northbound lane, the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office said in a release. It said a semitruck driver in the northbound land was unable to avoid him and hit his car head-on.

The driver, a man from the Zeeland area, was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries, authorities say.

The semitruck driver, from northern Indiana, had minor injuries.

M-40 is closed in both directions from 36th Street to 121st Avenue. Though the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post the road had reopened, it clarified later in a release that it remained closed.

The crash is still being investigated.
