IRON MOUNTAIN — A driver was cited after a single-vehicle rollover accident in Iron Mountain Wednesday evening.

The Iron Mountain Police Department was assisted at the scene by the Iron Mountain Fire Department, Michigan State Police, Dickinson County Sheriff’s Department, Beacon Ambulance, and the Breitung Township Fire Department.
