The crash happened near the intersection of County Road 612 and Crawford Lake Road at 11:15 a.m. A Michigan State Police sergeant at the scene of the crash tells the Record-Eagle at least three people are deceased.

Seven other people were injured and taken to area hospitals, including one who was flown by helicopter. A 3 –year-old child in one of the vehicles was uninjured.
