A man had to be extricated following a Monday afternoon crash in the Brighton area.

The crash happened around 4pm on southbound US-23, directly in between the new eastbound and westbound bypass lanes. Crews with Brighton Area Fire Department, Livingston County EMS, Michigan State Police and the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office all responded on the scene. Witnesses reported that the vehicle rolled over several times.

Brighton Deputy Fire Chief Mike Evans says the 62-year-old male resides outside of Livingston County and was driving a four-door sedan. Evans tells WHMI the man suffered multiple injures but also had some other underlying medical conditions. He says crews arrived and found the patient trapped inside the vehicle. Evans says the Jaws of Life were used to extricate the victim, noting it took less than 10 minutes to get the man out of the vehicle.

The victim was transported to the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor. The crash remains under investigation. (JM)
