IRON MOUNTAIN—A 27-year-old Amasa woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries in a one-vehicle accident on Jan. 9 on U.S. 2 near Fire Tower Road in Crystal Falls Township.
    Michigan State Police Iron Mountain Post troopers responded to the scene at approximately 3:55 p.m., MSP reported in a news release.
