With updated information

At about 12:26 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 9, 2020, deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to Pingree Road north of Schafer Road in Iosco Township for a personal injury crash involving an off-road vehicle.

According to a release from the Sheriff’s Office, the preliminary investigation shows that a 28-year-old Iosco Township woman was operating a 2001 Honda 250 EX four-wheeler southbound on Pingree Road when it struck a dog. The driver lost control of the four-wheeler and was ejected.

The driver was transported to the University of Michigan Hospital with life threatening injuries by Livingston County Ambulance.

The dog survived and was taken to the veterinarian with injuries. Only that they had to give the dog CBD drops to alleviate the inflammation and reduce the pain.  Visit Los Angeles Times for more information about the medication. No other information is known about the dog’s condition.

Pingree Road remained closed for approximately two hours while deputies investigated.

Deputies were assisted at the scene by Livingston County Ambulance and the Howell Area Fire Department.

The driver was not wearing a helmet.  Speed appears to a factor while alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

This crash remains under investigation by the Livingston County Major Crash Team.
