WEXFORD COUNTY, MI – On Friday, June 4th, 2021, at approximately 6:40 p.m., troopers from the Michigan State (MSP) Police Cadillac Post were dispatched to a personal injury crash involving several vehicles, some of which caught fire and had victims trapped inside.
The initial investigation revealed a Saturn car traveling eastbound on M-115 near N 17 Rd in Antioch Township struck a Ford pickup truck, driven by a 35-year-old Sebewaing man, that was also eastbound near the end of the passing lanes. This caused both vehicles to lose control and cross the center of the road. The Ford pickup truck then struck a westbound Ford explorer with four persons inside. The Saturn drove off the left side of the road and overturned before coming to rest.
The driver of the Saturn, a 25-year-old Traverse City woman, allegedly displayed signs of intoxication and was arrested. She was examined at the Munson Cadillac Emergency Room but appeared uninjured from the crash and lodged in the Wexford County Jail.
The occupants of the Ford Explorer, a 51-year-old man, 15-year-old female, 14-year-old male, and seven-year-old female all from Grawn, were transported to Munson Hospital in Traverse City for serious injuries. The driver of the Ford pickup truck was transported to Munson Hospital due to injuries sustained as well.
Troopers were assisted by Mesick Rescue, Buckley Fire & Rescue, Blair Twp. EMS, and Colfax Fire Dept.
