Two-Semi Wreck Sends Big Rig Crashing Into Grocery Store
Oscoda County, Michigan – An accident involving two big rigs sent one of the 18-wheelers crashing into a grocery store in Oscoda County on Wednesday.
According to the Oscoda County Sheriff the incident occurred at approximately 10:40 a.m. at the intersection of N. Abbe and E. Miller Road near the Fairview Food Market.
Investigators said as two tractor-trailers approached the intersection, one of the truck drivers failed to yield to the other.
The two semis collided sending one careening through a telephone pole and into the grocery store.
The big rig crashed through a wall near the produce section, officials said.
Customers, along with store employees, were inside at the time of the accident.
Incredibly, authorities reported no one was killed or even injured including the big rig drivers.
The driver that failed to yield was given a citation for the accident.
Roads in the area were shut down following the crash from 10:45 a.m. until 5:45 p.m. as clean up crews worked to clear the wreckage.
The extent of the damage to the store is still being assessed, but the owner of the market later took to Facebook to express his thoughts on quite a day.
He thanked God no one was injured.
“It was God’s loving hand watching over us,” he wrote. “God is good all the time.”
