      Woman crashes into garage in Cheboygan County

      A 62-year-old woman from Indian River lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a garage in Cheboygan County on Monday night.

      A 62-year-old woman from Indian River lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a garage in Cheboygan County on Monday night.

      According to the Cheboygan County Sheriff's Office, the driver was traveling south on S. Straits Hwy around 11:15 p.m. when she ran off the road way. She traveled about 1,000 feet in the ditch, went through several lawns and hit a mailbox before she crashed into a garage.

      The woman suffered injuries to her face and was transported to McLaren Northern Michigan Hospital by Cheboygan Life Support Systems. She is expected to recover.

      The Wolverine Fire Department was called in to assist as the SUV was leaking gasoline.

      The garage was located on the 9000 block of the S.Straights Hwy near Berry Creek Rd. Deputies say that there is a lot of damage to the garage.

      The woman was driving a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer.

      Authorities have requested a warrant for a blood test as they believe alcohol may have been a factor.

      The incident is under investigation.
