Jul 21, 2017

NEGAUNEE TOWNSHIP, MI--   A Champion man was cited Thursday for causing a three-vehicle crash in Negaunee Township.

Michigan State Police were called around 12:30 p.m. to US-41 near Pond Road. Troopers say a westbound vehicle driven by Katherine Hoholik, 66, of Negaunee had to stop on the inside lane because a truck towing a small trailer was blocking the lane. The truck—driven by Rodney Arnold, 54, of Negaunee—was in the designated turn lane waiting to travel east. Hoholik’s vehicle was rear-ended by a Honda Pilot driven by Gavin Ackland, 19, of Champion. The force of the impact sent Hoholik’s vehicle across the eastbound lanes to the south side of the highway.

No injuries were reported.

Ackland was ticketed for driving too fast for conditions.
