No one was seriously hurt in a two-vehicle accident about 2:35 p.m. Tuesday on Carpenter Avenue near J Street, Iron Mountain Police officers said. The accident occurred when a southbound sports utility vehicle driven by a 77-year-old Florida woman attempted to turn left into the Garret Eye Center parking lot, entering the path of a northbound pickup truck driven by a 54-year-old Iron Mountain man. Both drivers were transported by Integrity Care EMS to Dickinson County Memorial Hospital for treatment. The Florida woman was cited for suspected failure to yield. Iron Mountain firefighters helped provide traffic control, as the vehicles blocked the roadway.
