GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — An 18-year-old Rockford man is seriously injured after a crash involving a semitruck Thursday night, according to Michigan State Police.

We're told the crash happened near Kuyper College on East Beltline.

MSP says the driver was traveling north when he rear-ended a flatbed trailer while it was turning onto an industrial access road.

The other driver was reportedly uninjured in the crash, which resulted in the closure of the northbound lanes.

Authorities tell us alcohol is a possible factor in the incident.
