DOWAGIAC — A man was taken to the hospital following a two-vehicle crash in Pokagon Township Thursday afternoon. 

According to a press release from the Cass County Sheriff's Department, officers responded at about 3:30 p.m. to the intersection of Sink Road and Peavine Street for reports of the crash.

Joyce Brewer, 60, of Eau Claire, was driving west on Peavine Street approaching Sink Road when another vehicle failed to yield at the stop sign on Sink Road and collided with Brewer, according to the press release.
