No injuries in Sherman Township crash

Snowy conditions were cited as a factor in a two-vehicle collision earlier this week in Sherman Township.

Sheriff Mark Lillywhite said deputies responded around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday to the intersection of Featherstone Road and M-66.

Investigators said a Dodge passenger car was eastbound on Featherstone Road and unable to stop at the intersection due to snow-covered road conditions. Lillywhite said the vehicle, driven by a 32-year-old Sturgis man, slid into the intersection and struck a semi traveling southbound on M-66. It was driven by a 55-year-old Pennsylvania man.

The semi jackknifed after the collision, blocking the roadway.

A third passenger car swerved to avoid the crash and went into a ditch on M-66.

There were no injuries. Lilywhite said M-66 was closed for two hours while first responders cleared the crash scene.

Speed and snowy conditions were a factor in the crash. The Sturgis resident was cited for driving too fast for road conditions.
