Severe injuries were reported after a three-vehicle crash at the US-41 and M-95 intersection Monday morning.

The Marquette County Sheriff's Office was dispatched at 10:03 a.m. Monday.

79-year-old Judith Prisk, of Champion, was driving her 2007 Ford Escape eastbound on US-41, when a vehicle turned into her path of travel.

65-year-old William Mattila, of Republic, driving a 2010 Subaru Forester, turned south on M-95 from US-41, crossing Prisk's path of travel, leading to a collision.

Prisk's Escape overturned several times, before striking a 2018 Chrysler 300, driven by 71-year-old Michael McCann, of Negaunee. McCann was stopped in the turning lane behind Mattila's vehicle.

According to the sheriff's office, Prisk and Mattila were taken by ambulance to UP Health System-Bell in Ishpeming, and UP Health System-Marquette where they were both treated for severe, but not life-threatening injuries.

No other details have been released. The crash remains under investigation by the Marquette County Sheriff's Office.
