At approximately 5:29 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019, deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office responded to a three-vehicle crash on N. Old U.S. 23, south of Clyde Road, in Hartland Township.
The preliminary investigation reveals that northbound traffic south of Clyde Road was stopped because of congestion. A 2008 Ford Edge, driven by a 75-year-old Fenton resident with five occupants in the vehicle, was traveling south on N. Old U.S. 23 when it struck the rear of a 2003 GMC Sierra, driven by a 53-year-old Brighton resident, that was stopped in traffic. The GMC Sierra was pushed forward into a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by a 19-year-old Fenton resident. The Jeep Grand Cherokee was stopped in the roadway, waiting for traffic.
The front-seat passenger in the Ford Edge sustained serious injuries, and was transported to U of M Hospital in Ann Arbor by Livingston County EMS in serious condition. All of the other parties involved were treated and released at the scene.
Speed and alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the crash. Everyone involved was using seatbelts.
Deputies were assisted on the scene by the Hartland Fire Department and Livingston County Ambulance. The incident remains under investigation by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office Major Crash Team.
