Woman injured when car, semi-truck crash in Plymouth area

PLYMOUTH — A woman received minor injuries Tuesday when the car in which she was riding was struck by a semi-truck at the intersection of U.S. 30 and Queen Road.

According to a report from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department, the accident occurred at 9:40 a.m. when a semi-truck driven by 49-year-old George Newman, of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., drove through a red light at the intersection while heading east on U.S. 30.

Newman told police he did not see the light, and was forced to swerve to the right to avoid a car already stopped in front of him. The maneuver caused the trailer of his truck to slide in a clockwise direction, striking a car driven by 77-year-old Raymond Clevenger, of Walkerton, as it headed south on Queen Road through the intersection.
