When a semi carrying processed logs attempted to miss a vehicle that pulled out in front of him, the move resulted in an overturned truck and a spill of logs on the side of the road.

The accident was reported at 1:46 p.m. Wednesday afternoon on the corner of West Ludington and U.S. 10. Clare County Deputies reported that a 20-year-old Farwell man failed to yield while he was making a left turn in his KIA from West Ludington onto westbound US-10. He pulled into the path of the semi, which was driven by a Sears resident. The semi overturned when the driver swerved to avoid the car. The semi driver was taken to Evart for minor medical treatment, officers said. Clare County Deputies were assisted at the scene by the Surry Township Fire Department, Clare Fire Department, Mobile Medical Response Ambulance and Peterson’s Towing of Cadillac.
