Two-car crash critically injures driver on US-23 in Pittsfield Township
A man was in critical condition following a two-car crash on U.S-23 south of Ann Arbor early Friday morning.
The man was driving south on US-23 near Merritt Road between 5:30 and 6 a.m. when he lost control of the car, crossed the median and ended up in the northbound lanes, where another car struck his vehicle, said Pittsfield Township Fire Chief Sean Gleason.
Both drivers were taken to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Superior Township, Gleason said. The woman driving the other vehicle had minor injuries.
The freeway was closed for at least an hour and a half, and the accident caused a long backup on the freeway in both directions for several hours.
Further information, including the ages of the drivers and the makes of vehicles involved, was not available.
Snow that fell early this morning glazed roads and resulted in several other crashes in the Ann Arbor area Friday morning.
