WORTH TOWNSHIP, MI – On Tuesday, September 13th, 2016, at approximately 3:30 a.m., Sanilac Central Dispatch received a 9-1-1 call regarding a personal injury accident on S. Lakeshore Road near Baker Road in Worth Township.
According to Deputy Chad Adams, through the investigation it was determined that a 2003 Silver Toyota Corolla driven by a 25-year-old female from St. Clair was traveling northbound on S. Lakeshore Road and failed to stop at the barricades where bridge construction is underway at Mill Creek. The female driver then went airborne striking an excavator that was parked at the bottom of the excavation site. The female driver was able to exit the vehicle and was found lying under a crane that was parked at the top of the excavation site. It did not appear that the female was able to stop in time before striking the barricades that were positioned at the top of the excavation site.
The driver of the vehicle whose name is being withheld pending charges was transported by Croswell EMS to Port Huron McLaren Hospital for treatment of her injuries.
The accident remains under investigation and alcohol appears to be a factor in the accident. It is unknown if the driver was wearing her seatbelt during the crash.
Sheriff’s Deputies were assisted on scene by Lexington Fire Rescue, Croswell EMS, Croswell Police Department and Sal’s Towing along with the Highway construction workers that worked to remove the
