Firefighters freed two men trapped in a crashed SUV on Saturday morning in Sanilac County, police said. Officials responded to a report of a single-vehicle crash around 7 a.m. Saturday, May 1 near Miller and Maple Valley roads in Watertown Township, just south of Sandusky, said the Sanilac County Sheriff’s Office in a news release. A 2004 Mercury Mountaineer driven by a 29-year-old Sandusky man was headed west on Miller Road, police said. The car exited the roadway into a ditch and then crashed into a tree. The Sandusky man and one passenger, a 28-year-old DeWitt man, could not exit the car on their own, police said, so firefighters pried open the car with the Jaws of Life to extricate the men. Paramedics transported the men to McKenzie Memorial Hospital in Sandusky for treatment of their injuries, police said. The Sanilac County Sheriff’s Office received assistance at the scene from Sanilac EMS and the Sandusky Fire Department.
