EMS responds to two separate car crashes within a half hour

ALPENA – Two separate car crashes occurred within 30 minutes of each other early Thursday afternoon.

The first accident took place on the roadway between Harbor Freight and Walmart. The most recent accident occurred on North Bagley St. right in front of WBKB News.

“All the patients were out of their vehicles,” said Chief Robbins. “Two of them were ambulatory. The other two were being transported to the hospital.” Another two people signed refusals for treatment.

Witnesses exited from the Wolverine Credit Union and TV station to extinguish smoke ballooning from the two cars before firefighters arrived.

Fluids leaked from one of the cars on the street.

Township Fire Chief David Robbins described the crash as a T–bone hit.

Identities of the victims are not available at this time.
