GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A four-vehicle crash slowed traffic Wednesday morning on the East Beltline.

The crash happened around 6:30 a.m. near the intersection of East Beltline and Bradford Street NE.

Authorities say a car going north in the left lane didn't stop for traffic sitting at a red light and rear-ended a pickup truck. The collision caused the truck to rear-end a vehicle in front of it, and caused that vehicle to hit one in the right lane.

The driver who rear-ended the first vehicle had to be freed from her vehicle and was taken to the hospital to be treated for a leg injury. Nobody else was injured.
