Two men involved in car crash Thursday night at the intersections of U.S. 2 and U.S. 41 in Breitung Township are on the road to recovery.

Troopers from Iron Mountain Post of the Michigan State Police say it happened around 6:00 p.m., when 25-year-old Justin Blevins failed to stop at a red light. Blevins proceeded to enter the path of an eastbound vehicle on U.S. 2 driven by 19-year-old Theodore Pineau. Pineau’s vehicle was struck behind the driver’s side door, causing it to roll over and eventually come to rest on its side in a grassy median.

Both vehicles received extensive damage. Blevins and Pineau were transported by ambulance to Dickinson County Memorial Hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries and later released.

Police say both drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Blevins was cited for failing to stop at a red light.

Troopers were assisted on scene by the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Department, the Iron Mountain Police Department, the Breitung Township Fire Department, and Beacon Ambulance.
