SANDS TOWNSHIP – A Texas woman was shaken up Thursday morning after her SUV left the roadway and went over a guardrail.
Around 9:30 a.m., the Marquette County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched to a one-car accident on M-553, just north of the Lake Superior Christian Church. They say Jennifer McCormick, 45, of Lewisville, Texas, was driving her silver Suzuki north on M-553, when she hit a patch of ice on the edge of the roadway.
Her SUV then fishtailed, sending her over a guardrail. The vehicle rolled 1 1/2 times and landed on its side.
McCormick was not injured in the accident and declined medical treatment. She was wearing her seat belt when her car left the roadway.
Police believe that speed was a factor in the accident, but alcohol was not.
The Marquette County Sheriff’s Department was assisted by the Marquette Township Fire Department, Sands Township Fire, Michigan State Police Hometown Security Team and U.P. Health System EMS.
