Snow covered, icy roads causing several accidents

CHAMPION –The ice and snow cover roads have caused problems for drivers across the U.P. this morning.

We heard reports of many vehicles going off the road or being stuck. The driver of this Ford Ranger found himself upside down this morning on County Road 478 off of US-41 just outside of West Ishpeming.

According to police on scene, the driver lost control of his truck around 8:15 a.m. He was not injured in the accident.

The Marquette County Road Commission did re-sand the road after the accident.
