Two die, four treated for injuries in Michigan car accident

Not far from the Detroit and other metropolitan areas in Michigan there are miles of rural highways. While intersections are fewer and farther between, these spots are often the source of serious injuries or fatalities in car accidents. This is often due to the high speed of the cross traffic.

The driver of a Ford Mustang in Montague Township, Michigan apparently mishandled his responsibilities as a driver at a rural intersection and paid with his life and the life of his passenger.

The driver, who, along with his passenger, was in his mid-20s, is believed by investigators to have caused the fatal accident on Aug. 27 when he either ran through a stop sign or pulled out in front a Chevy Impala driven by a 40-year-old woman carrying her three daughters, according to police.

Colliding with each other and causing substantial damage, both cars skidded off the road into a field near the intersection. The initial collision ejected one of the passengers from the car.

One of the daughters in the Impala was air-lifted to a local children's hospital where doctor's listed her in serious condition while the others were brought in for medical treatment via ambulance. Hospital officials withheld the conditions of two daughters in the car who were minors, per medical privacy laws.

Investigators didn't release much information on the two victims, whose identifications are being held in order to give law enforcement time to inform family and friends.

A crash investigation by the Michigan State Police is still pending and troopers stated that they will conduct a crash reconstruction to help sort out the matter.
