Woman Seriously Injured in Owen Crash

Woman apparently failed to yield to pickup truck when turning left, police say.

Two motorists were taken to after a 5:45 a.m. crash on Wednesday at Owen Road and Donaldson Drive, said Fenton Chief of Police Rick Aro.

The crash occurred when a passenger vehicle turned left from Donaldson Drive onto Owen Road, in front of an eastbound pickup truck, he said.

The driver of the 2010 Ford Escape, a 42-year-old Linden woman, had a red flashing traffic signal, Aro said. The driver of the 2009 GMC pickup, a 49-year-old Burton man, had a yellow flashing traffic signal.

The Linden woman apparently did not yield to the other driver, he said. She was seriously injured and was taken to Genesys Regional Medical Center, where she remained hospitalized Thursday morning, police said.

Police determined the Linden resident was the at-fault driver and cited her for failing to yield, Aro said. The male driver also was taken to Genesys hospital.

Both vehicles had “pretty substantial damage,” he said.

Owen Road was closed for a short time after the accident, and the Fenton Fire Department was called in to assist. An MMR ambulance took the female driver to the hospital, while STAT EMS transported the male driver, the police report said.

Getting a ticket for almost killing someone doesn't seem heartless to me. It's more like a free pass.

Heartless? What about the guy in the truck she turned in front of? He went to the hospital too.
