      Car slides off road in Ishpeming

      A car slid off the road into an embankment in Ishpeming Tuesday.

      A red truck, driven by a 28-year-old Ishpeming woman, was attempting to turn on Division St from Jasper St when it slid off the road. The cause of the incident is unknown, but officials speculate that the vehicle may have been experiencing mechanical issues.

      Fire fighters arrived at the scene and used a chainsaw to cut branches that were covering the vehicle, which was then towed out of the ditch. The driver was taken to the emergency room by Bell Ambulance. Her condition is unknown at this time.

      Ishpeming Fire and Police Departments responded to the scene. No other cars were involved.
