MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - UPDATE: A Marquette man is dead after a crash on Marquette County Road 550 Thursday afternoon.

The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office says the three-vehicle crash was reported at 4:00 p.m. Thursday.

Investigators say a 57-year-old Marquette man was driving his 2007 Buick LaCrosse northbound on Count Road 550 near Compeau Creek Road when he crossed the center line and hit an oncoming 2015 GMC Sierra truck driven by a 67-year-old Marquette man.

The Buick LaCrosse proceeded in the southbound lane and struck a 2008 Ford F-550 pickup trick driven by a 34-year-old Gwinn resident. All three vehicles sustained heavy damage, according to the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office.

The driver of the northbound vehicle, the 57-year-old man from Marquette, was taken to UP Health System-Marquette for life threatening injuries. The driver was pronounced dead at the hospital. The two other drivers either denied medical treatment on scene or sought their own treatment.

Names are not being released at this time and the family has been notified.

The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by the Marquette Township Fire and EMS, UP Health System EMS and the Michigan State Police.
