Two People Injured in Car Crash in Chippewa County

A crash in Chippewa County Thursday injured two people and closed a highway for eight hours, Michigan State Police says.

The crash involved a propane truck and a car at the intersection of M-129 and M-48 South of Pickford. It happened around noon, but M-129 didn’t re-open until 8 p.m.

Due to propane leaking, a one mile area around the intersection was evacuated and traffic was rerouted.

The Michigan State Police Accident Reconstruction team is trying to determine the cause of the crash.
