GRAND HAVEN TWP. — A Muskegon Heights woman suffered minor injuries in a crash with a semi-truck that blocked northbound U.S. 31 near Buchanan Street during the Thursday morning commute.

An ambulance transported Elexis Elise Williams, 28, to North Ottawa Community Hospital following the 7 a.m. crash.

The crash occurred in the northbound lanes in front of the Admiral gas station, located north of Buchanan Street in Grand Haven Township.

Williams was driving a 2008 Chrysler Sebring in the right northbound lane and started to pull off the highway toward the gas station, but then jerked back into the semi-truck’s lane, said Sgt. Derek Christensen of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office. The 2014 Freightliner semi was unable to avoid the car, striking it in the rear corner and pushing it into a white 2007 Nissan, Christensen said.
