KENT CITY, Mich. — M-37 reopened just after 1 a.m. Saturday after crews cleared the scene of a deadly crash involving a semi-truck and a pick-up.

The crash happened at about 5:30 p.m. Friday on M-37 between 15 Mile Road and Phelps.

Michigan State Police said the driver of the pick-up truck was heading north on M-37 when he crossed over the center line coming out of a curve and hit the southbound semi-truck head-on.

The pick-up truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver's name has not yet been released, but police say he is from Grand Rapids. The driver of the semi was not hurt.

Sparta Fire Chief Jerry Bolen told FOX 17 it was one of the worst crashes he'd ever seen.
