3 dead in multi-vehicle accident
CHIPPEWA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say three people including a 3-year-old child have died and four others were injured following a multi-vehicle crash in mid-Michigan.
The crash happened Sunday afternoon in Isabella County’s Chippewa Township, near Mount Pleasant and about 120 miles northwest of Detroit.
The sheriff’s office says one vehicle swerved into oncoming traffic along Michigan highway 20, colliding head-on with a pickup truck. Another vehicle hit the pickup. The dead were the driver of the vehicle that swerved and two passengers in the pickup, including the 3-year-old child.
The sheriff’s office says the driver of the vehicle that swerved may have had a medical issue before the crash, but the cause of the crash is under investigation.
