Negaunee Twp. Man Charged for Accident

An arraignment is set for a man facing charges from an afternoon-rush-hour accident.

Around 4:30 yesterday afternoon, a 46-year-old Negaunee Township man rear-ended a car in the westbound lane of US-41.

Instead of stopping, the man drove away.

State troopers from the Negaunee Post pulled him over on Airport Circle.

The driver was arrested for drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident.

The man was released today and is due for an arraignment next week.

The crash remains under investigation.
