A two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Grand River Avenue and Scale Drive in Handy Township sent two to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office responded to the crash at approximately 12:40 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2021. The preliminary investigation shows that an 80-year-old Williamston woman driving a 2019 Ford Escape was entering Grand River Avenue from Scale Drive. The woman didn’t see a 2002 Chevrolet Suburban being driven by a 50-year-old Mason man heading east on Grand River Avenue; there were also three passengers in the Suburban.
The Ford Escape pulled out and was struck by the Chevrolet Suburban. The woman driving the Ford Escape sustained minor injuries. The man driving the Chevrolet Suburban was seriously injured, while the passengers in the vehicle were uninjured.
The drivers — who were both wearing seat belts at the time of the crash — were transported to Sparrow Hospital by Livingston County EMS.
Grand River Avenue was closed for approximately two hours during the investigation and cleanup.
Alcohol and/or speed do not appear to be factors in the crash, which remains under investigation by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were assisted on the scene by the Fowlerville Fire Department and Livingston County EMS.
