FREE SOIL TWP. — Three people were injured in a two vehicle crash on U.S. 31 north of Free Soil Road about 5:45 p.m. Sunday afternoon. The crash involved a white Honda Odyssey minivan and a gray Dodge Journey SUV. According to emergency responders on scene, the crash occurred when the southbound Journey, driven by a Manistee woman, was attempted to make a left turn into Orchard Market. The Journey drove into the path of the northbound Honda, driven by a 72-year-old Illinois man.
