Sheriff’s deputies say the crash happened in front of Lowe’s around 7:45 a-m.  A Ford pickup driven by Clifford Dice, 51, of Bay City pulled out onto the highway from the Lowe’s driveway and into the path of a westbound Chevy driven by Neil Bonetti, 33, of Marquette. 

Bonetti was taken to Marquette General Hospital for evaluation of minor injuries. 

Dice was cited for failure to yield the right-of-way.

Both vehicles were heavily damaged in the crash.  Both eastbound lanes of traffic on US-41 were diverted for about 45 minutes.
