OCSO cruiserCRYSTAL TWP. — The driver in a rollover crash Monday afternoon, Feb. 2, told police her pickup truck was run off the road by an oncoming truck, which did not stop to help her and her injured female passenger.

The passenger — a 54-year-old Rothbury woman — was transported by Oceana EMS to Mercy Health Lakeshore Campus in Shelby for treatment and evaluation, according to an Oceana County Sheriff’s Office accident report.

The driver — 47-year-old Hart woman — was traveling west on East Madison Road, just west of 136th Avenue, in a 2004 Chevrolet Colorado pickup when a Dodge truck traveling east was taking up three-quarters of the roadway. She told police that she tried to get over and got into the snow on the shoulder of the road, which pulled her into the ditch. She ran off roadway on the right, and the truck began to roll over. The driver told police she believes they rolled more than one time. The driver of the Dodge truck kept going and did not stop, she said.
