HOUGHTON COUNTY — Two people were taken to the hospital after another single-vehicle rollover in Houghton County early Friday morning.

The Houghton County Sheriff’s Office said the incident happened shortly after midnight on South River Road. Twenty-three-year old Andrew Korona lost control of his vehicle and left the roadway, striking a power pole and causing the vehicle to roll on its side.

Korona and his passenger were treated and released from UP Health System – Portage. Police say that seat belts were not worn and alcohol was a factor in the accident, which remains under investigation.
