Monday single-vehicle crash snarls Yooper Loop

A red pickup truck found itself in a precarious spot Monday afternoon, creating a traffic hassle for commuters on M-26 and US-41 just west of the Portage Lake Lift Bridge. Lieutenant Nick Roberts of the Houghton Police Department says it was a mechanical issue that caused the crash, not driver error.

My understanding [is] the brakes failed on the vehicle.

Roberts says that the pickup was able to be towed and the driver was not injured. The truck ended up straddling the rock face that juts out beneath Veterans Memorial Park.
