The driver of the International truck, a 34-year old Laporte, Indiana man and the driver of the Honda, a 52-year old Olmsted, Ohio man were not injured.

The highway was closed for several hours, while the crash was investigated by members of the Blackman-Leoni Traffic Crash Reconstruction Team.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department and the Michigan State Police assisted in re-routing traffic off of the highway.
