Fenton — Four people are in the hospital after a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 23 at Silver Lake Road on Thursday, June 25 at approximately 1 p.m.

   A vehicle was entering the northbound U.S. 23 entrance from Silver Lake Road and collided with a Penske truck that was traveling northbound, said Fenton Police Chief Jason Slater. Two people were in the first vehicle, a male driver and female passenger, and two males were in the Penske truck.

   After they collided, the two vehicles spun. The Penske truck swerved, hit the guardrail, went over it and rolled down the hill. The two men inside were wearing their seatbelts.

   Police had to extract them from the vehicle. All four people were taken to a hospital for medical attention.

   “So far, we believe we don’t have any serious injuries,” Slater said.

   Multiple towing companies were on scene. U.S. 23 was slowed for approximately 30 minutes, and traffic on Silver Lake Road remained slow while first responders worked to clean up the wreckage. An investigation is underway. Slater said they don’t know if drugs or alcohol were involved.
