Fatal accident in Van Buren County

A 19-year-old woman has died after a car and semi truck collided in Van Buren County, Michigan.

It happened Sunday morning around 9:30 on I-94 near mile marker 52 in Lawrence Township, near Paw Paw, Michigan.

Police say, 19-year-old Samantha Anthony was exiting at exit 52 when her vehicle lost control from the snow-covered road.

She then collided with the semi-truck and her car was thrown into the median.

The truck driver attempted to miss the car after it hit the median, but its trailer hit Anthony's car a second time.

Anthony was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police believe the winter weather was a factor in the crash.
