ADAMS TOWNSHIP – A single-vehicle accident on northbound I-75 the morning of Friday, Dec. 2 near mile marker 196 in Adams Township left three people injured.

“There were four people in a pickup,” said Arenac County Undersheriff Don McIntyre. “The driver of a pickup had lost control of the vehicle due to ice on the road, causing it to roll over three times.”

The truck, a Ford Explorer Sportrac, stopped rolling right-side up.

The accident occurred at around 8:50 a.m., McIntyre said. Three passengers were reportedly not wearing seatbelts and were ejected from the vehicle, he said. One, a female, was airlifted to Hurley Medical Center in Flint. The other two passengers were taken to St. Mary’s of Michigan Standish Hospital.

No citations have been issued at this time, and the accident is still under investigation. Officer Chris Van Horn with the Arenac Sheriff’s Department was on the scene, and said poor road conditions and vehicle speed may have been factors in the accident. He said alcohol is not believed to be involved.
