Multiple-vehicle crash in Marquette Township
MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP, MI-- An elderly Marquette man has been cited for causing a three-vehicle accident in Marquette Township.
Sheriff’s deputies say the crash happened Thursday around 1:15 p.m. on US-41 near County Road HIA. They say 86-year-old Lester Passinault pulled out of Lowes and into the path of a westbound Grand Cherokee driven by 39-year-old Traci Champion of Ishpeming. The impact of the crash sent the Passinault's vehicle into an eastbound Pontiac G6 driven by 62-year-old Mary Keough of Marquette.
Champion was taken to Marquette General Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The other drivers sought their own treatment of minor injuries.
Deputies cited Passinault for failure to yield the right-of-way.
