US-41 rollover accident near Negaunee

Although the majority of the roads in the U.P. are open, icy conditions led to a number of accidents, including a rollover on US-41 near Negaunee.

Eyewitness reports say it happened just before 1:00 p.m. when a white van traveling southbound on US-41 spun out near a median and rolled over onto its side.

Firefighters were forced to break the front windshield of the van to extract the victim, who was then taken to Bell Hospital. The victim’s name and status has not been released at this time. No other vehicles appeared to be involved in the accident.

The Negaunee City Police, the Negaunee Fire Department and the Michigan State Police all assisted at the scene.
