OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. — No one was injured following a three vehicle crash Sunday evening.

It happened along eastbound I-96 near 48th Avenue near Coopersville.

Police say a semi truck driver attempted brake during a traffic slowdown for the change in traffic along  the highway. The driver realized there wasn’t enough time and veered to the right, according to a press release from the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office. The truck driver struck a jeep driven by a man from Ada. The jeep ended up striking a Chevy Blazer with a family from Saginaw  inside.

The eastbound lanes were reportedly closed for an hour while crews worked to clean-up the crash.
