Reports provided by local news sources show that a brown sedan was traveling on Michigan 115 when the vehicle collided with a dark-colored SUV near the area of North 15 Road. The impact of the crash caused the SUV to go off the road and come to rest in a grass field along the highway.

The drivers of both vehicles were seriously injured in the accident. Both victims were rushed to area hospitals for further treatment. A passenger in the second vehicle was transported to a local hospital where they were treated and released.

Car Accidents in Michigan
Statistics compiled by the Michigan State Police Criminal Justice Information Center show that more than 310,000 vehicle collisions take place in the state of Michigan each year. Over 256,000 of these accidents result in extensive property damages while more than 55,000 people are left injured. These accidents not only disrupt victims immediately, but they have long-term consequences that are overwhelming to both victims and their families.
When victims are injured in accidents, they are often rushed to area hospitals for treatment. After undergoing emergency surgery, most victims are admitted and forced to spend several days or even weeks in a hospital or rehabilitation facility. As if being forced out of work to recover were not enough, victims are further burdened by stacking medical bills they need as a result of their injuries. In cases where victims are harmed by negligent or reckless drivers, they should contact a car accident attorney in Michigan immediately. Victims may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate the financial burdens they face for both economic and non-economic damages.
