18-vehicle crash

NEGAUNEE – Three people sustained minor injuries in an 18-vehicle accident Tuesday morning in Negaunee Township.

The accident occurred at about 8:45 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 41 near the Carp River crossing.

Troopers from the Negaunee post of the Michigan State Police said that snow-covered, icy road conditions contributed to the chain reaction crash.

Eastbound U.S. 41 traffic was diverted at Maas Street until about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Troopers said that the crash remains under investigation, and no citations have yet been issued.

Assisting at the scene were the Marquette County Sheriff’s Department and the Negaunee Police Department.
