PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — A 25-year-old Charlevoix woman allegedly lied to sheriff’s office about her driver’s license status and her residence after the woman caused a three-vehicle crash Saturday, June 2 on US 10 in front of Burger King.

MCP reported Saturday night that the woman stated to Mason County Sheriff Sgt. Jeremy King that she was from Pennsylvania and that she had never applied for a driver’s license.

A MCSO corrections deputy discovered the woman’s identity during the booking/finger printing process, Sheriff Kim Cole said. The woman had a suspended Michigan driver’s license and also an outstanding warrant against her for failure to appear in a Charlevoix County court. Following the crash, she was arrested for furnishing false identification to a police officer, driving while license suspended first offense, and the outstanding warrant from Charlevoix County.

Emergency personnel were dispatched to the 5200 block of US 10 at 7:52 p.m. Saturday night. The crash occurred after the Kia SUV the Charlevoix woman was driving rear-ended a Chevrolet Blazer that was attempting to make a right-hand turn into Burger King. The impact of the crash caused the Blazer to overturn and then strike a Chevrolet Cavalier car that was waiting to exit the Burger King driveway. Those involved in the crash only received minor injuries.

Responding to the scene were Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Pere Marquette Township Fire Department, Ludington Fire Department, and Life EMS.
