Man Ejected From Van After Accident

Southfield (WWJ)- A Pontiac man is hospitalized after he was thrown out of a van during an accident early Sunday morning. 

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Department says the driver of the conversion van, 32-year old Talisha Turner, lost control of the vehicle while driving eastbound on Huron Street near Paddock.  The van went off the road and hit a guardrail.  The impact caused the passenger in the van, 42-year old Robert Turner, to be ejected.   

Authorities say Robert Turner, who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, was transported to Pontiac Osteopathic Hospital by the Pontiac Fire Department.  He was listed in stable condition.  Talisha Turner was treated for minor injuries.  She was wearing a seatbelt. 

Investigators say alcohol use is not a factor in the crash which remains under investigation.
