By Beth Milligan | Jan. 10, 2018

Three people were hospitalized following a three-vehicle crash on US-31 between Three and Four Mile roads Tuesday.

The Grand Traverse Sheriff's Office responded to the scene of the East Bay Township accident just before 8:30am. According to authorities, a 75-year-old McMillan woman was driving west when her car spun out of control, crossing the center line and striking an eastbound vehicle driven by a 47-year-old Traverse City woman. A second eastbound vehicle driven by a 53-year-old Traverse City man was also struck, but the man was uninjured in the crash.

Both of the other drivers were taken to Munson Medical Center. Two passengers in the westbound vehicle were also hospitalized. They included the front-seat passenger, a 64-year-old Germfask resident, and a 76-year-old McMillan resident, who was unrestrained in the rear seat and was ejected through the back window during the collision.

Authorities restricted traffic flows on US-31 for approximately an hour while responders processed the crash site. The accident remains under investigation.
