A 59-year-old Tekonsha man was one of two people injured in an accident in Hillsdale County Monday afternoon.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to East Mosherville Road in Scipio Township around 4:30pm, where an SUV had lost control, left the roadway and struck a tree.

The driver, Michael Casebeer, was flown to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Toledo for treatment. The passenger, 39-year-old Hilary Britton of Jonesville, was taken to Hillsdale Hospital for treatment.

The investigation continues, as authorities believe that controlled substances may be a factor in the crash. Authorities said that seat belts were used.
