Aug 13, 2019

HUMBOLDT TOWNSHIP, MI--   Two people are hospitalized following a three-vehicle traffic accident in Humboldt Township. 

Marquette County Sheriff’s deputies say it happened Monday just after 10 a.m. at the intersection of US-41 and M-95. William Mattila, 65, of Republic was westbound on US-41 and attempted to turn south onto M-95 when he turned into the path of a vehicle driven by Judith Prisk, 79, of Champion. The collision forced Prisk’s car to roll over several times and strike a vehicle driven by Michael McCann, 71, of Negaunee, who was stopped behind Mattila’s vehicle.

Prisk and Mattila were taken to UPHS-Bell, then transferred to UPHS-Marquette for treatment of severe—but not life-threatening—injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
