HUMBOLDT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZMQ) – A Republic man was hospitalized with minor injuries following a crash Monday morning that involved a semi cab.

The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office says it happened at 7:54 a.m. at the US-41 and M-95 intersection in Humboldt Township.

The 29-year-old Republic man was turning his pickup truck westbound onto US-41 from M-95 when his pickup was struck on the passenger side by a semi cab with no trailer.

The driver of the pickup was also cited for failing to yield.
