One man killed and another in critical condition after crash

A fatal car crash yesterday, about 50 miles west of Ann Arbor, took the life of one Michigan man and left another hospitalized in critical condition. The accident occurred just after four o'clock in the afternoon.

According to local news reports, the head-on collision killed a 41-year-old Jackson man who was driving a Pontiac sedan. The other driver, a 32-year-old man also from Jackson, was driving a Jeep SUV and was transported to the hospital by helicopter, where he is listed as being in critical condition.

The wreckage after the crash evidenced the violent force of the impact. The front end of the Jeep was destroyed and the rear driver's side wheel had been torn off by the collision. The Pontiac was overturned and crushed. The Pontiac came to rest on its roof in the front yard of a home on Henry Road.

A woman who had been inside a nearby house watching a movie ran outside when she heard the crash. While barefoot, she ran to the Pontiac and attempted to communicate with the driver but received no response. That man reportedly died at the scene. A nurse and an off-duty police officer were the first to respond and attempt to help the man in the Jeep.

Law enforcement officials have not yet released the names of the victims. They have also not indicated whether an investigation into the cause of the crash has been able to determine the exact chain of events leading up to the fatal accident.
