No injuries in Negaunee Township rollover

MARQUETTE — One person was cited but no injuries were reported after a rollover accident on U.S. 41 just east of Pond Road in Negaunee Township around 7:35 this morning.

The vehicle, a single-cab Chevrolet Silverado, was eastbound on U.S. 41 when the driver lost control of the vehicle, rolling into a ditch in the median, according to the Michigan State Police Negaunee Post.

While troopers were at the scene, another pickup truck came along, braked and also slid into the ditch, officials said.

The driver of the Chevrolet Silverado was cited for violation of the basic speed law, officials said.

“The roads were a little slick but the driver was going too fast for conditions,” trooper Andrew Peterson said.

The eastbound passing lane on U.S. 41 was closed for about a half hour in the area, police said.
