Two people were hurt in an SUV-versus-semi-truck accident on US-41 in Humboldt.
It happened shortly before 11 Saturday morning, about a quarter-mile west of County Road FN.
The Marquette County Sheriff’s Department says 58-year-old Alex Manov of Laurium was heading east on the highway when he lost control of his Jeep Cherokee on a curve.
He crossed the center line into the path of a westbound semi driven by 66-year-old Firn Moreau of Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada.
The SUV slid sideways into the front of the semi.
Manov and a passenger of his, 60-year-old Larisa Petrova-Pollard of Laurium, were both taken to Marquette General with unknown injuries.
There’s no word on how they’re doing.
Petrova-Pollard had to be extricated from the Jeep.
Moreau was not hurt.
Police say US-41 was covered with snow and slush at the time.
Manov was cited for careless driving.
The Sheriff’s Department says that alcohol was not a factor and that everyone was wearing seat belts.
Bell EMS, Marquette County Rescue Unit 131, Champion Township Fire and First Responders, Humboldt Township First Responders and Michigamme-Spurr First Responders assisted at the scene.
