      Names released in Ishpeming crash

      The drivers of Monday's two car crash in Ishpeming have been identified.

      Megan Couture, 24-year-old from Ishpeming, was going westbound on US-41 in her 1999 Ford Contour. A Ford Taurus driven by Andrew Juchemich, a 28-year-old also from Ishpeming, was attempting to turn left from US-41 onto Second Street. Juchemich turned into Couture's path and struck her. Both drivers had a green light at the time.

      Juchemich was taken into custody for driving while license suspended or revoked, second offense, and was also giving a civil infraction citation for failure to yield right of way. Juchemich remains in jail pending a court hearing.

      Both declined medical treatment on the scene; however Megan may seek treatment on her own for neck pain.

      Assisting the Ishpeming Police on the scene were the Marquette County Sheriff Department, Ishpeming Volunteer Fire Department and Bell Memorial EMS.
