A 28-year-old Pinckney man was transported to the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor on Monday after a single-vehicle crash pinned him inside his vehicle.
According to a release from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, at approximately 4:21 p.m. March 22, 2021, the Pinckney man was heading south on Farley Road in Putnam Township in a 2005 Buick LeSabre. The driver lost control of the car in a curve and drove off the roadway south of Swarthout Road and hit a tree at the driver’s door. The driver was pinned inside the vehicle and had to be extricated.
The man, who sustained non-life threatening injuries, was transported to UM Medical Canter via Survival Flight.
The roadway was closed for approximately two hours during the investigation, and deputies were assisted on the scene by the Hamburg Township Police Department, Putnam Township Fire, Livingston County EMS, and U of M Survival Flight.
