Accident Partially Closes Roads - Two Transported To Hospital
February 28th, 2012
An accident yesterday afternoon on Lapeer Avenue just east of 24th Street in Port Huron sent two people to the hospital. Traffic was partially blocked for a time as Port Huron Fire Department crews worked to clear the wrecked cars. Reports say that a car heading eastbound on Lapeer Avenue carrying five Shelby Township residents made a left turn on to Rural Street into the path of a westbound vehicle. Both cars had front-end damage. The impact apparently sent both cars into the front of a semi-truck that had stopped at the intersection of Lapeer Avenue and Rural Street. The driver and passenger of the one vehicle, which are reported to be a Port Huron couple in their 70s, were transported to an area hospital with minor injuries. Both front airbags of their car deployed in the crash. No other injuries were reported.
