Six People Hurt, One Airlifted In Head On Crash In Pennfield
Several people, including two young girls, are hurt following a two-car crash in Pennfield Township Wednesday night.
The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office says that deputies were called to M-66 near Morgan Rd. around 7:30pm Wednesday, to find that a Ford Taurus and Chevy Trailblazer collided head-on. Four people were trapped in the sedan, and had to be extricated.
One 13-year-old girl in the car had to be airlifted to Bronson Kalamazoo, while a second 13-year-old was taken there by ambulance. The front seat passenger of the SUV had to be taken to the hospital in Battle Creek as well; both drivers, and the second back-seat passenger of the car, were treated for minor injuries.
Right now, what caused this crash remains under investigation, but deputies say that alcohol and drugs are not believed to have been involved. All of those involved in this crash are reportedly from the Battle Creek area.
Sheriff’s Deputies were assisted by the Pennfield Fire Department, Life Care Ambulance, and the Marshall Ambulance Authority.
