According to a DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office crash report, 61-year-old Beatriz Halbert of Lansing had just merged onto Interstate 69 from S.R. 4 in a 2017 Nissan Rogue when she rear-ended a southbound 2002 Kenworth semi driven by 30-year-old John Merritt of Angola.
Halbert said she did not see the semi, the report said.
Halbert suffered injuries to her head, chest and arm, and was taken to a DeKalb County hospital. The Nissan was totaled in the crash, according to the report.
