CLAYTON — A woman driving a 2014 Chevy Malibu rear ended a semi at 7:50 a.m. Tuesday on State Route 49 in front of United Dairy Farmers.

The semi and car continued north on 49 and came to a stop at the north side of the Union Road intersection. Clayton Fire & Rescue had to extricate the driver of the Malibu by cutting off the roof of the car. According to Clayton Police, the woman was alert and suffered only minor bumps and bruises.

Police are not sure why the woman did not stop in time to avoid hitting the semi. She was removed from the scene and transported by Clayton medics to the Good Samaritan North Emergency Room.

The semi was from LTDM Trucking LLC out of Chicago, Illinois.
