ISHPEMING, MI--   Two people are injured, following a three-vehicle accident in Ishpeming.  

City Police say the crash happened Thursday around 2:35 p.m. at the intersection of US-41 and Lakeshore Drive.

They say a Chevy Cavalier driven by a 17-year-old Ishpeming male was westbound on 41 when a northbound Ford Explorer driven by a 23-year-old Ishpeming woman failed to stop for a red light on Lakeshore.  The explorer struck the cavalier, and the force of the crash pushed the cavalier into a Buick Rendezvous sitting at the intersection.  The Buick was driven by a 56-year-old Champion woman.

Two people were taken to Bell Hospital—one with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. 

The driver of the Explorer was cited for failure to yield.
