Marquette woman arrested for suspicion of OWI following car crash

MARQUETTE — One woman has been arrested for suspicion of operating while intoxicated following a one car accident that occurred Wednesday night.

The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the area of Grove Street and County Road 492 at approximately 8:27 last night, for the report of a one vehicle crash.

The driver of a 2015 Chevy Cruz, a 21–year–old Marquette resident, was westbound on Grove Street, when she ran the stop sign at the intersection of 492. The vehicle crossed over both lanes of traffic, and crashed into an embankment on the other side of the road.

The driver was not injured, and she was later arrested for suspicion of operating while intoxicated.

The backseat passenger, a 21–year–old female from Gross Isle, was transported to UPHS–Marquette for medical evaluation of non–life threatening injuries. There was one other passenger in the vehicle who was not injured in the incident.

This case remains under investigation, and ABC10 will continue to update the story as more information becomes available.
