      Man injured in head-on collision

      A 55-year-old man was sent to Northstar Hospital after a crash in Crystal Falls Township at 11:55 a.m. on Monday.

      According to the Michigan State Police, Frederick Jacobs was driving on US-2 near Bristol Road when a vehicle, driven by 23-year-old Steven Berndt, attempted to turn, causing the collision.

      The MSP reported that Berndt lost control of his vehicle while trying to turn into a private drive, resulting in the head-on collision. He was cited for failing to yield to traffic. Jacobs was taken to Northstar Hospital, treated for injuries and released.

      Police said seatbelts were used properly, and alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
