A 36-year-old Ludington woman was complaining of chest pain and difficulty breathing and a 46-year-old Ludington man complained of neck and shoulder pain after the turquoise Chevy Corsica they were riding in was hit, according to Ludington Police Deparment Sgt. Sue Maltbie.

The accident occurred when an 85-year-old Ludington woman driving her black Chevy Blazer failed to yield as she was turning east onto Filer Street from Washington Avenue as the Corsica was driving north through the intersection, Maltbie said.

The 85-year-old woman suffered no injuries and was cited for failure to yield, according to Maltbie.

The Corsica sustained damage to the front end and tire and was towed away. The Blazer was able to be driven away from the scene, but also sustained minor front-end damage.

Both the 36-year-old Ludington woman and 46-year-old Ludington man were transported by Life EMS to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital.

The Ludington Police Department, Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Life EMS, and Ludington Fire Department all responded to the scene.
