Hartland, Mich., man injured in crash

DUNDEE, Mich. — A Hartland, Mich., driver was injured Sunday morning when he lost control of his 1997 GMC Sonoma pickup truck while southbound on U.S. 23 and was struck by a tractor-trailer rig headed in the same direction.

The semi then jackknifed across the highway and was struck by two other vehicles.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said Jeremy A. Legg, 21, was in the right lane when he lost control of his pickup on the icy highway.

His vehicle was struck by a semi driven by Leonard J. Bouza, 73, of Auburn, Mich.

The accident in Dundee Township, 18 miles north of the Ohio line, was reported at 5:24 a.m.

The jackknifed 1998 International tractor-trailer blocked both southbound lanes of U.S. 23 for approximately three hours, deputies said.

Monroe Community Ambulance transported Mr. Legg to Toledo Hospital, where his condition was unavailable Sunday night.

Mr. Legg was wearing a seat belt; alcohol did not appear to be a factor, deputies said.
