Vehicle hits, snaps pole in Negaunee


NEGAUNEE, MI--   No injuries were reported after a vehicle hit a utility pole in Negaunee.

City Police were dispatched Wednesday around 4:25 a.m. to US-41 West near Malton Road. Upon arrival, officers found a Chevrolet Impala had veered off the roadway and struck a power pole, causing it to break and fall into the eastbound lane of the highway.

The driver of the vehicle—a 48-year-old Ishpeming woman—appeared to have had a medical episode prior to the crash. She appeared uninjured, thanks to her seatbelt and the airbag deploying.  She was taken to UPHS-Bell for evaluation.

UPHS-Bell EMS, the Negaunee City Fire Department, the Negaunee City Electrical Department and Anttila’s Towing assisted at the scene.
