MARTIN, MI (WHTC) - A 57-year-old trucker from Hopkins lost his trailer near Martin in the pre-dawn hours yesterday, but before Michael Pavlak was able to get flares and other warning markers out, a Jeep driven by 45-year-old Julie Ann Harrington of Otsego drove into the side of the trailer that was blocking eastbound 124th Avenue near 6th Street. She had to be extricated by rescue crews and was flown to Spectrum-Butterworth Hospital with critical injuries; Pavlak wasn’t hurt. Authorities say that the trailer had a lighted side marker and conspicuity tape, and the paved road was clear of ice at the time.
