The Iron Mountain Fire and Iron Mountain Police Departments were dispatched to a three car personal injury accident at 12:03 p.m. today.

The accident happened on US-2 near “H” Street and the Neu Cup parking lot.

Police say a pickup truck was southbound on US-2 approaching “H” Street when the 62 year old male driver from Crystal Falls experienced a life threatening medical condition causing him to go unconscious. The pickup truck crossed the center line of the roadway and struck a passenger car that was stopped on US-2 waiting to turn westbound onto “H” Street.

After striking the passenger car, the pickup truck left the roadway continuing onto the sidewalk still going south. After traveling on the sidewalk, the pickup truck struck a second pickup truck parked in the Neu Cup parking lot. After this impact in the parking lot, the pickup truck spun around and then continued north up an embankment where it finally stopped.

Responding firefighters and a responding officer were able to remove the man with the medical situation from the pickup truck and disable the vehicle that was still in drive with the wheels spinning at a high rate of speed.

The only injury was to the 62 year old male driver of the pickup truck.  He was transported to Dickinson County Hospital for treatment by Integrity Care EMS.
