Five Injured In Mayfield Township Crash

By Patrick Sullivan | Feb. 25, 2020

A 1-year-old girl, two 7-year-olds, and two others suffered injuries Friday evening in a crash in Mayfield Township.

A 16-year-old Traverse City teen was headed south on M-37 near Harrand Road at 10:30pm when he lost control of his GMC Sierra pickup on a patch of ice, spun sideways, and crashed into a Kia van coming the other way, driven by a 25-year-old Mesick woman and carrying the three children.

The 1-year-old and a 7-year-old boy were taken to Munson Medical Center; a 7-year-old girl was airlifted to Devos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids. The 25-year-old driver was also taken to Munson.

A 15-year-old female passenger in the other vehicle was also injured and was taken to Munson.

Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Lt. Chris Oosse says a heavy crosswind had iced over patches of the highway prior to the crash. Drugs and alcohol are not believed to be factors, but Oosse says the case will be turned over to the prosecutor’s office to determine whether charges should be filed.
