BRONSON, MI – A portion of U.S. 12 west of Bronson near the Branch-St. Joseph County line had to be shut down Tuesday morning.

Bronson Fire Chief Scott Wilber says the impact snapped the pole and caused the power lines to fall onto the road. A Consumers Energy crew responded in order to make the necessary repairs.

The driver of the pickup truck was not injured.

U.S. 12 reopened to traffic just after 7 a.m. Tuesday morning.
