Deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a two-vehicle injury crash on Chase Lake Road, east of Burkhart Road in Cohoctah Township, at approximately 5:50 p.m. Sunday Sept. 26, 2021.
The preliminary investigation has revealed that a 19-year old Howell man was driving a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado east on Chase Lake Road when he crossed the center-line of the roadway and struck head-on a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado being driven by a 55-year-old Howell resident.
Both drivers refused transport by EMS, saying they would seek medical treatment on their own. The 15-year-old passenger in the Colorado was released to his parents, who also refused EMS and stated they would self-transport for medical treatment.
Chase Lake Road was closed for approximately three hours during the investigation and clean up.
Drug use and speed appear to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were assisted on the scene by The Howell Area Fire Department.
