ZEELAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A 15 year-old girl is in serious condition after her Chevy Traverse hit a semi near Byron Road and 48th Avenue Friday just after 5 p.m.

The Hudsonville teen was driving south when Ottawa County Sheriff's Deputies say she crossed into the path of a westbound semi, pinning her in the car.

Zeeland Township Fire got her out, and first responders treated her until Aero Med arrived to take her to DeVos Children's Hospital. Officials say she is in serious condition. Her passenger, a 47 year-old woman from Hudsonville, was taken to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital in stable condition.

The driver of the semi was not injured.
