      Ishpeming man crashes car, arrested for driving drunk

      A 20-year-old Ishpeming man was arrested and put in jail Saturday after police said he was driving under the influence of alcohol, causing him to lose control of his vehicle on County Road CG in Ely Township.

      The crash happened two miles south of County Road 581.

      The man lost control of his vehicle just after 1 a.m. while driving on a curve south of the steel bridge. The vehicle then crashed into a set of small trees on the side of the road.

      Two passengers were inside the vehicle at the time of the crash and one was taken to the hospital.
