      Three adults and an infant sent to hospital in afternoon crash

      A two car collision occurred on US-41 between Hancock and Calumet Monday afternoon, sending three people to the hospital.

      The Hancock Fire Department, Mercy EMS, and Quincy Township Fire Department crews responded to the call at around 4 p.m.

      Officials say that both vehicles were headed southbound on US-41 when the crash happened. According to police, a truck driven by 29-year-old Nathanael Shafer had run out of gas and was coasting on the right shoulder. Shafer was attempting to enter the roadway to turn on to Paavola Road, but he didn't see another truck, according to police.

      The second truck, driven by 33-year-old Nicholaus Lambert, was struck and overturned. Shafer was taken to Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital to be treated for his injuries. Lambert and his 62-year-old passenger were taken to Portage Hospital. An infant in Lambert's vehicle was taken to Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital.

      Police say that both drivers were wearing seatbelts and the infant was in a child restraint. The 62-year-old passenger was not wearing his seatbelt.

      Everyone involved in the crash were treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital, according to police.
