A Dodge pickup driven by 25–year–old Amanda Buck was northbound on M-553 just north of County Road 480. After losing control due to icy conditions, the truck slid sideways across the lane where the passenger side was struck by a southbound vehicle driven by 68–year–old Su Hausmann of Gwinn. Hausmann had her four–year–old grandson in the vehicle. The two of them sought their own treatment for minor injuries. Buck was transported by ambulance for non–life threatening injuries.
