MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP, MI--   An Ishpeming man was ticketed for causing a two-vehicle accident in a new Marquette Township roundabout Tuesday. 

The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office says it happened around 2:40 p.m. on US-41 at the Brickyard Road roundabout. David Schneider, 31, of Ishpeming was eastbound in a Saturn sedan when he lost control of his vehicle. It hit a GMC pickup in the roundabout driven by Elliot Conroy, 21, of Ishpeming.

The pickup hit and rolled over a guardrail on 41, then traveled down an embankment. The Saturn deflected off the truck and struck the guardrail on Brickyard Road.

Conroy sought his own treatment at UPHS-Marquette. Schneider was cited for speeding and driving while license suspended.

Deputies were assisted at the scene by Marquette Township Fire and EMS.
