A 77-year-old Grand Rapids woman died Tuesday, October 24, when her vehicle collided with a semi tractor in Courtland Township.

According to the Michigan State Police Rockford Post, the woman was traveling westbound on M-57 about 12:25 p.m. in a 2012 Chevrolet Traverse, when she attempted to turn south on to Northland Drive and into the path of a Freightliner semi tractor traveling eastbound on M-57. The woman died at the scene as a result of injuries she sustained in the crash. Her name has not yet been released.

The driver of the semi, a 59-year-old Greenville man, was not injured.
