Fenton Man Injured in Silver Lake Road Crash
A 23-year-old Fenton man taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
A 23-year-old Fenton man was transported to Genesys Regional Medical Center Wednesday night after a truck crash on Silver Lake Road near Silver Parkway, police said.
Fenton Police Chief Rick Aro said the man was driving his 1997 Ford truck westbound on Silver Lake Road around 8:15 p.m. when he attempted to turn left onto Silver Parkway, but failed to yield and was struck by a 1999 Ford pickup truck, which was traveling eastbound on Silver Lake Road.
The Fenton man was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Aro said. The man also had two Fenton male passengers, ages 22 and 21, in the vehicle, who were uninjured. The driver of the 1999 Ford pickup, a 21-year-old Linden resident, was also uninjured.
Both vehicles were heavily damaged and had to be towed from the scene, Aro said, which resulted in traffic backups.
