Two vehicle accident in Iron County

One person was taken to the hospital following a two vehicle accident in Iron County Wednesday morning.

The Iron County Sheriff’s Department said the accident happened on U.S. 2 in Bates Township at the intersection of Bates Amasa Road.

Wilbert Krahn, 78, of Iron River, made a left turn from Bates Amasa Road onto U.S. 2 and drove into the path of a westbound vehicle driven by Donald Powell, 52, of Iron River.

Powell struck Krahn’s vehicle as it turned onto U.S. 2.

Occupants in Powell’s vehicle sought their own treatment for minor injuries and Krahn was transported to Northstar Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Police cited Krahn for failure to yield.

The Michigan State Police Motor Carrier Officer, the Iron River Police Department, Northland Service, Northstar EMS, and the Michigan State Police assisted at the scene.
