WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — A driver was killed after a car collided with a semi-truck on US-131 in Wyoming Monday afternoon.

She was identified by Michigan State Police as Sharon Koltak, 71, of Grand Rapids.

It happened around 12:15 p.m. in the southbound lanes near 54th Street. MSP says a car hit the side of a semi-truck while changing lanes, then went off the right side of the road and hit the barrier wall.

The crash remained under investigation later Monday, but MSP said neither drugs nor alcohol are believed to have been involved.

The highway was shut down for about an hour while authorities investigated and cleaned up.
