      One vehicle rollover in Houghton County

      The Houghton County Sheriff Department investigated a one vehicle roll over that took place Monday at 12:10 p.m.

      Officials say that a 1998 Ford truck driven by 40-year-old Tawyna Norback of Covington was travelling northbound on Tapiola Road approximately one mile south of Tapiola. Norback attempted to pass two northbound vehicles and lost control of the truck. The truck slid out of control and rolled over into the ditch. Norback was not wearing a seatbelt at the time, and was ejected from the vehicle.

      Reports state that Norback suffered severe injuries and was treated at the scene by Otter Lake First Responders and Mercy Ambulance personnel. She was transported to Portage Hospital by Mercy Ambulance, then later to Marquette General Hospital for further treatment.

      The Houghton County Sheriff's Office reports that speed and alcohol were contributing factors in the crash.
