Man injured in Cass County car crash

NEWBERG TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- The Cass County Sheriff's Office says a two-vehicle crash sent one man to the hospital. It happened on Saturday, November 19 at 4:59 p.m. on M-60. 

Deputies say an 18-year-old Cassopolis man was headed east on M-60 when he swerved to miss a vehicle stopped in the road, lost control, and slid off the roadway. 

The vehicle then crashed into a vehicle that was already in the ditch and stuck in the snow. The passenger of that vehicle in the snow was out and attempting to free it when the crash happened. 

A 73-year-old Lawton, Michigan, man was trapped between the two vehicles until first responders were able to free him. He was taken to Three Rivers Hospital for his injuries. 

Deputies say alcohol and drugs don't appear to be a factor in the crash, but road conditions are being considered.
