MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — Two teens were taken to the hospital after an accident in Marquette Township Tuesday evening.

Marquette County Sheriff’s Office deputies say the one-car crash happened on Forestville Road just north of Huron Woods Drive around 6:15 p.m. The car driven by a 17-year-old Champion girl drove off the road and hit two large trees before coming to rest on the driver’s side.

The driver had to be extricated from the car. She and a 17-year-old female passenger were both transported to UP Health System – Marquette for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Deputies say the driver was found at fault for driving too fast for conditions.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Marquette Township Fire Department, UP Health System EMS, and the Marquette City Police Department.
