GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- A crash involving a box truck, a pedestrian, a car, and semi has a busy Grand Rapids intersection shut down Thursday morning, police say.

The crash occurred at the intersection of 28th St. and Eastern Ave. Police say a box truck knocked a pedestrian into the road, and pulled off to the side. That is when a car came up to the scene and stopped to avoid hitting the pedestrian. A third vehicle -- a semi -- then rear-ended the car that managed to stop, sending it into the pedestrian.

The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The crash was cleared by 7:15 a.m.
