A woman behind the wheel of a vehicle that traveled across the middle of Interstate 496 in Lansing’s downtown area was hospitalized following the Tuesday afternoon crash, city police report.
It happened shortly before 2 p.m. when the unidentified, 41-year-old Lansing woman apparently let the vehicle veer across the median and into oncoming traffic. It then collided head-on with a tractor-trailer, and overturned a number of times before coming to rest on a guard rail, an incident report shows.
The woman, who was the only person in the car at the time of the crash, had to be extricated through the roof of the vehicle before being transported to an unidentified medical facility. The person behind the wheel of the semi was uninjured, according to authorities–who continue their investigation.

Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
