Ishpeming Township, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Marquette County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a two-vehicle accident yesterday in Ishpeming Township.

It happened around 5:15 p.m. on US-41 at North Lake Road when an eastbound semi-truck, driven by 35-year-old David Spooner of Iron Mountain, attempted to turn left onto North Lake Road.

Deputies say Spooner failed to yield for a pickup truck that was also eastbound, driven by 19-year-old Antonio Gravedoni of Ishpeming.

The pickup hit the side of the semi near the cab and ruptured the semi’s fuel tank, resulting in a spill of a large amount of diesel fuel.

A female passenger in the pickup sustained a minor injury. Gravedoni and Spooner were not injured.

Spooner was ticketed for making an improper turn.
