GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A woman was thrown from her vehicle after loosing control and going off the road just before 5:30 p.m. Thursday.

The 19-year-old Byron Center woman was getting onto eastbound M-6 from westbound I-196 when her vehicle hit some ice.

The vehicle slid down the grassy hill and rolled, throwing the teen out. She was taken to Metro Hospital in serious, but stable condition.
