Woman removed from car after crashing into semi carrying 40,000 pounds of auto parts
A woman was taken to the hospital by ambulance Tuesday morning after her car ended up underneath the trailer of a semi truck carrying almost 40,000 pounds of auto parts.
Ann Arbor Fire Department Battalion Chief Kevin Cook said firefighters responded to westbound Interstate 94 near Ann Arbor-Saline Road during the morning rush hour Tuesday. Cook said firefighters found a car underneath the trailer of a semi truck.
The trailer was loaded down with 39,000 pounds of auto parts, Cook said.
Cook said firefighters did not know how the woman ended up underneath the trailer. However, it’s likely that the crash can be attributed to the snowy conditions that plagued Ann Arbor-area traffic Tuesday morning.
Firefighters were able to remove the woman through a back door of the vehicle, Cook said.
The woman was speaking to firefighters as they turned her over to the care of Huron Valley Ambulance paramedics, Cook said. A further update on her condition was not available Tuesday afternoon.
