SPARTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- One person is dead after a crash between a semi and a pickup truck on M-37 in northern Kent County.

Around 5:30 p.m. Friday, emergency crews were called to M-37 north of 15 Mile Road. A northbound pickup truck coming out of a curve went across the center line and into the path of an oncoming, southbound semi truck. The pickup's driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

The semi's driver was not hurt.

The semi caught fire and leaked diesel fuel after the crash, but crews were able to put the fire out within a half-hour.

The crash is still under investigation. The road re-opened just after 3 a.m. Saturday.
