US-31 crash caused by wrong-way driver

NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WZZM) - One person was seriously hurt in a one-way crash on US-31 Thursday morning.

A car driven by a 30-year-old man was not able to avoid her. The collision sent his car rolling onto the shoulder of the road. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The woman was not hurt, but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
