SANILAC COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A man was thrown from the vehicle when a pickup and plow truck crashed over the weekend in Sanilac County.

It happened on Sunday, Dec. 11 at the corner of Mills Street and Jackson Street in the city of Sandusky.

Investigators said a 30-year-old Peck man was driving a 2006 Ford F-350 southbound on Jackson Street. Also inside his vehicle was a 54-year-old man from Marlette and three children.

As the truck approached the intersection at Mills Street, a Sandusky DPW plow truck driven by a 63-year-old Sandusky man failed to stop at the stop sign.

The two trucks crashed at the intersection.

The impact caused the passenger door of the pickup to open, and the 54-year-old man was thrown across the snowy roadway, police said.

The man was taken to McKenzie Hospital by ambulance for his injuries. Police believe he was not wearing a seat belt.

The driver of the plow truck was cited.
