      One man was injured May 17 when his van crossed the centerline and hit the rear axles of a semi-trailer. The driver of the van, William Nagel, 46, of Carney, Mich. was traveling west on US 2 just west of North Lake Road in Spread Eagle when he hit the eastbound semi driven by Bruce Ponton, 41, of Wabeno.

      Nagel was transported to Dickinson County Hospital with minor injuries. Ponton was not injured.
