Couple seriously injured in accident with pickup truck

A Michigan husband and wife were both hospitalized after a car accident last week about 50 miles west of Ann Arbor. The crash occurred on Jefferson Road in Columbia Township just after three o'clock in the afternoon.

Another driver described how the accident occurred to the Jackson Citizen Patriot newspaper. That driver was travelling westbound on Jefferson road and a blue pickup truck was driving behind them. They were in a no-passing-zone with a double yellow line. The truck went around them on the left, crossing the double yellow line into the eastbound lane. At the same time the husband and wife were pulling out of a driveway.

The pickup truck broadsided the couple's car. The driver who witnesses the accident said that there was no way the couple could have avoided the accident because the pickup was driving way too fast.

In order to transport the wife to the University of Michigan Medical center in Ann Arbor, she was taken to the baseball field behind the Columbia Middle School. There she was picked up by a helicopter and flown to the medical center. The husband was transported by a regular ambulance. Neither sustained life threatening injuries. Both are reported to be in fair condition.

The driver of the pickup truck that attempted to pass on the double-yellow line was put into the back of a police cruiser after the accident. There has not been a report of any charges being filed yet against the pickup truck driver, as an investigation into the accident likely remains ongoing.
