Minor injuries in pickup truck vs. semi crash.


COLFAX TOWNSHIP – A 32-year-old Walkerville woman received only minor injuries in a pickup truck vs. semi truck crash Thursday afternoon, Oct. 11, thanks to the quick actions of the semi truck driver.

The pickup truck driver told the sheriff’s deputy that she did not see the 2005 Mack truck approaching the intersection of Madison Road and 186th Avenue and pulled out in front of it, according to the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office accident report.

The semi driver, Paul Bernard Monton, 39, of Scottville, told the deputy that he “took evasive action to avoid a collision by pulling into the other lane,” but was unable to avoid a collision with the 2003 Ford Ranger.

Life EMS responded to the scene as well the Walkerville Fire Department. The woman was not transported, according to the report.

Both she and a passenger – a 34-year-old Walkerville man — were wearing their seat belts as was Monton.
