A total of 106 calls for help were phoned into the Montmorency County Sheriff’s Office last week.

At least 8 of the calls were for auto accidents.

Last Tuesday night deputies were called to the scene of three separate accidents between cars and animals. Shortly after 9 p.m. a driver collided with a bear on County Road 624. About 45 minutes later a vehicle struck an elk on the same roadway. And at 11:15 p.m. a driver hit a deer on M-32.

Around 11 a.m. last Wednesday deputies were sent to a home in Albert Township on a report of a possible break-in. Later that afternoon they were sent to a two-car collision on County Road 624. One person was transported to the hospital for minor injuries.

And a male patient was taken to the hospital in Alpena last Thursday night, following a single-vehicle rollover accident on Pleasant Valley Road. Police said the victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Departments from Lewiston, Atlanta, Hillman and Canada Creek were called to seven fires over the week. Ambulances from those areas responded to 29 calls for help.
