Driver cited after running stop sign and causing crash that hurt 7 people
A three-car crash that injured seven people was caused by a driver who ran a stop sign at the intersection, investigators reported Thursday.
Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Geoffrey Fox said a vehicle that was eastbound on Bemis Road approached the intersection with Whittaker Road. The vehicle did not stop at the stop sign at the intersection, which does not have traffic lights.
Fox said a vehicle southbound on Whittaker struck the vehicle and then went off the road into a ditch. A third car that was northbound on Whittaker then struck the eastbound vehicle on Bemis, he said.
Fox confirmed there were 10 people in the three vehicles and seven people were transported to the hospital.
Huron Valley Ambulance officials reported one child was in critical condition after the crash, which occurred shortly before 4 p.m. Tuesday, but Fox said no one was in critical condition.
The driver of the vehicle on Bemis that ran the stop sign was cited, Fox said.
