Driver, infant escape serious injury in rollover crash on U.S. 23 in Ann Arbor
A woman and an infant appeared to escape serious injury after a rollover crash on northbound U.S. 23 on the east side of Ann Arbor Tuesday morning, firefighters said.
The crash at about 8:20 a.m. on northbound U.S. 23 north of Washtenaw Avenue caused major traffic delays on both sides of the freeway.
The car ran off the road into the median and rolled over several times, said Capt. Craig Liggett of the Pittsfield Township Fire Department. Pittsfield firefighters were first to the scene, said Fire Chief Sean Gleason, but Ann Arbor Township firefighters handled the crash because it was in their jurisdiction.
The driver and infant, who was buckled into a car seat, were taken to the University of Michigan Hospitals, but the infant appeared not to be injured, Liggett said. The driver was conscious and talking to rescuers at the scene, he said.
The crash was the second rollover accident of the morning on U.S. 23. An earlier rollover crash occurred on southbound U.S. 23 near Plymouth Road, but no one had to be taken to the hospital, the Ann Arbor Township Fire Department said.
Both crashes had been cleared as of 9:20 a.m., a dispatcher with the Washtenaw County sheriff's department said.
