Driver injured in semi crash

A collision between two semi-trucks Thursday in Sturgis sent one driver to the hospital, according to emergency officials.

Public safety officers were dispatched shortly before 5:30 a.m. to the intersection of Lakeview Avenue and U.S. 12, where they found a semi-trailer had rear-ended another semi.

The driver of the second truck was unresponsive, removed from the vehicle and taken by ambulance to Sturgis Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the first semi was uninjured, authorities said.

Traffic was rerouted around the crash site due to the large amount of oil and debris on the road. Chicago Road was reopened around 9:30 a.m.
