Two injured in Houghton County accident
(PORTAGE TOWNSHIP)- Two teens were injured in a two-vehicle accident Monday in Portage Township.
According to the Houghton County Sheriff's Office, a 16 year-old female from Dollar Bay was making a left turn on U.S. 41 into a private drive near Pilgrim Point, and was struck broad side by a north bound vehicle driven by 26 year-old Brady Olson of Toivola, sending the other car into the ditch.
Sheriff deputies needed the “jaws of life” to remove a 16 year-old female passenger from that car.
Both girls were transported to the portage health systems' emergency department for treatment of their injuries.
Their conditions were unknown at this time, and the accident remains under investigation.
