MARQUETTE — A driver was arrested for operating under the influence of liquor following a single-vehicle rollover crash that took place at about 12:50 a.m. Saturday on U.S. 41 West at the intersection of Marquette County Road HQ in Marquette Township.
The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were dispatched to the crash and, upon arrival, located the sole occupant of the crashed vehicle.
