VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. - The Van Buren County Sheriff's Office reports that deputies were dispatched to the M-43/M-40 intersection for a two-vehicle crash resulting in minor injuries around 6:30 a.m. Friday.

According to documents, a Jeep was traveling South on M-40 Highway coming up on the intersection with a green light, while a Ford F250 hauling a utility trailer was traveling West on M-43 Highway. 

Officials say the Ford didn't stop at the red light and entered the intersection.  

The Jeep then struck the Ford's utility trailer.

The Jeep came to rest on the West side of the intersection while the Ford stopped on the shoulder after the crash.  

The Jeep's driver, a 62-year-old Gobles woman, complained of shoulder pain and was checked by EMS. She elected to go to the hospital with family.  

Authorities say the Ford driver, a 38-year-old Kalamazoo man, was issued several citations for his hazardous actions.
