Head-on Collision in Wexford County

Emergency Responders had to use the Jaws of Life to get a Cadillac woman out of her vehicle after a head on collision this morning.

The crash happened on M-55 near Hemlock drive in Haring Township around 9:30 this morning. The Wexford County Sheriff’s Office says 83 year old Donald Kalback of Lake City was heading eastbound on M-55 when he lost control of his pickup truck, spinning out and crashing into the drivers side of a westbound pickup truck driven by 51 year old Shelly Fuller of Cadillac.

The Haring Township Fire Department, Cadillac Fire Department and Cherry Grove Fire Department all responded to the scene and utilized the Jaws of Life to extricate Fuller from her vehicle. Fuller was transported to Munson Medical Center in Traverse City for treatment of a possible head injury; Kalback was treated on-scene for minor injuries.

The accident is still under investigation.
