FAIRPLAINS TOWNSHIP — A woman was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries after her vehicle hit a slick road and rolled over into a ditch this morning.

The crash happened shortly after 9 a.m. on Fenwick Road, just west of Miller Road, where the roadways were covered with a thin layer of ice.

Michigan State Police Trooper Kelly Linebaugh said a 61-year-old Orleans Township woman lost control of her Ford Explorer and left the roadway. The vehicle then rolled over onto its side.

A resident at a nearby farm helped the woman get out of the vehicle. The resident then attached the unstable vehicle to a tractor to prevent it from rolling on top of the woman, according to Linebaugh.

The woman was transported via ambulance to Spectrum Health United Hospital in Greenville. Her name has not yet been released.

The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office and Sheridan Community Fire Department assisted at the scene.
