Accident at Wright and Commerce knocks out power

MARQUETTE — Two cars were in rough shape after an auto accident in Marquette this afternoon at the intersection of Wright Street and Commerce Road. The Marquette County Sheriff’s Department arrived on scene just before 2 p.m.

Police say that 18–year–old Colton Wiggins of Marquette, driving a 2007 GMC pickup, pulled in front of oncoming traffic. 34–year–old Sarah Koskiniemi, also of Marquette, veered right to try to avoid the collision.

Her Chevy Suburban did hit the side of Wiggin’s car and a power cabinet that caused a power–outage in the area for a couple of hours. Northbound traffic on Wright Street was closed for about an hour.

There were no injuries reported at the time of the crash.
