REYNOLDS, Mich. —  Three people are seriously injured after their car crashed into the back of a semi.

Michigan State Police were called to the crash in Montcalm County around 6:12 a.m. Tuesday morning.

State troopers say a semi truck was waiting at a light on Federal Road near the M-46 highway.

A 56-year man was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Trail Blazer with his teenage daughters, ages 16 and 13, when they hit the semi from behind.

The 16-year-old was airlifted to a hospital, while the man and his 13-year-old were taken by ambulance.

All three had serious injuries, though the driver of the semi was not hurt.

Police believe the teenagers were not wearing seat-belts at the time, but the cause of the crash is still being investigated.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
