A head-on crash Thursday in Handy Township sent four people to the hospital, one with serious injuries.
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office reports that a Sergeant was on patrol when he came upon a serious injury crash that had just occurred shortly after 3:30 p.m. on Fowlerville Road just south of Layton Road.
A preliminary investigation indicated that a 27-year-old Flint resident was driving a 2003 Ford F250 pulling a trailer northbound on Fowlerville Road. The driver lost control of the vehicle and crossed the centerline and struck a 2004 Ford F350 being driven by a 66-year-old Fowlerville resident who was southbound on Fowlerville Road.
There were three occupants in the 2003 Ford. The driver sustained life threatening injury in the crash and was transported by Livingston County Ambulance to Sparrow Hospital for treatment. The passengers were transported to other local hospitals for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the 2004 Ford was transported to Saint Joseph Livingston for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
The occupants in the 2003 Ford were not wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash but speed does.
The roadway was closed for approximately 3 hours for the investigation and cleanup.
Deputies were assisted on scene by The Fowlerville Fire Department and Livingston County Ambulance.
This crash remains under investigation by The Livingston County Major Crash Team.
