A woman was taken to the hospital after the Sanilac County Sheriff’s Office said she crashed into a garbage truck in Worth Township.

On Wednesday, Oct. 13 at 2:10 p.m., Sanilac County 911 received a call about the crash on S. Lakeshore Road near Indian Trail Road.

A 2001 commercial garbage truck stopped on its route when a 2019 Chevrolet Equinox, driven by a 74-year-old woman from Redford Township, struck the driver’s side of the garbage truck, according to the sheriff’s office.

The 74-year-old woman was taken to Port Huron McLaren Hospital for treatment of her injuries. The two garbage truck workers were not injured.

A medical condition may have contributed to the crash, the sheriff’s office said.

The crash is still under investigation. Deputies were assisted by Croswell EMS and Burtchville Township Fire Department.
