Woman injured in semi accident

A Sand Lake woman escaped with minor injuries after a semi tractor trailer collided with her car last week.

According to the Montcalm County Sheriff Office, Edie Peterman, 43, of Sand Lake, was heading west on the Howard City-Edmore Road, in a 1999 Dodge Caravan, on Friday, December 19, about 10:56 a.m., when a 2015 freightliner semi tractor trailer, which was heading east, turned north on to Six Lakes Road, and the two vehicles collided.

Peterman was transported by Montcalm County Emergency Medical Services to Spectrum-UMH in Greenville, with minor injuries. Deputies issued the uninjured semi driver a citation for failing to yield to oncoming traffic. The semi driver was identified as Cesareo Jesus Miguel Torena, age 32 of Cape Coral Florida.
Police said both were wearing seatbelts. Neither alcohol nor speed was a factor in the crash. Airbags deployed in the Dodge and greatly minimized the extent of injuries. Michigan State Police troopers also assisted Deputies at the scene.
