      Stolen pickup truck ends up in rollover accident

      A pickup truck that was left unattended while warming up was stolen and then involved in a high-speed crash on Sunday night in Union Township according to the Isabella County Sheriff's office.

      Police say a 20-year-old woman jumped into the unattended 1988 GMC Sierra pickup outside of the owner's residence.

      The woman made her way to US-127 southbound.

      The owner of the pickup advised the police that the woman driving the pickup was going over 100 miles-per-hour.

      The sheriff's office says that she lost control of the pickup and left the roadway to the west and went airborne.

      The truck then slid through a fence at Genuine Road, then crossed Genuine Road and went into a ditch.

      After going into the ditch, police tell us it hit some small trees and started to roll numerous times, eventually ejecting the woman, who was not wearing a seat belt.

      The pickup eventually stopped rolling on Maple Creek Golf Course.

      The woman driving the pickup was taken to McLaren Mid-Michigan Hospital and then flown by helicopter to Covenant HealthCare in Saginaw.

      The extent of her injuries are unknown at this time.

      Charges are still pending.

      Police are still investigating.
