Durand man critically injured in Howell Twp. crash

A medical incident is thought to have been the cause of a serious injury crash Friday morning in Howell Township.

The Livingston Sheriff’s Office reports that at approximately 11:45 a.m. deputies were dispatched to a two-vehicle serious injury crash on Highland Rd at Burkhart Road.

A preliminary investigation indicated that a 56-year-old male Durand resident was driving a 2015 Jeep westbound on Highland Road, when the vehicle left the roadway to the right, traveled onto the shoulder and struck the guardrail several times.

As the Jeep approached the intersection of Burkhart Road it then collided with a 2006 GMC C7500 that was turning right onto Burkhart Road from Highland Road. The driver of the GMC was a 68-year-old Whitmore Lake resident who was not injured in the crash.

Authorities say it appears that driver of the Jeep operator was suffering from a medical condition at the time of the crash. He was transported by Livingston County Ambulance to the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor for treatment in critical condition.

Neither alcohol or speed appear to be factors in this crash. It also appears that both drivers were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.

Deputies were assisted on the scene by Livingston County Ambulance, Howell Area Fire Department, Michigan State Police, and State of Michigan Motor Carrier.
