BRANCH TOWNSHIP — Three people were uninjured after the vehicle they were in crashed over an embankment on US 10 east of Schoenherr Road Sunday afternoon. According to Mason County Sheriff Dep. Ken Baum, the Chevrolet pickup, driven by a 47-year-old Montague woman, was traveling west on US 10 when the driver apparently fell asleep. Her parents, both 75-years-old, were passengers.

The vehicle crossed the centerline and the eastbound lane. It then went onto the shoulder and ended up on the outside of a guardrail. The driver appeared to have attempted to compensate but was forced into an embankment by the guardrail. The vehicle landed several feet into the embankment.

Emergency personnel formed a human chain up the embankment and assisted the three passengers and a dog up. The 75-year-old female passenger was checked over by EMS personnel but refused treatment.

Responding to the scene were Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Custer Fire Department, Branch Fire Department and Life EMS.
