Multiple children injured in two-vehicle crash

HOWARD TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- Deputies responded to a two-vehicle crash with injuries on M51 Highway near Maple Street on Saturday around 6:10 p.m., according to the Cass County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators determined that a Niles woman and her daughter were driving south on M51 in a Kia Optima at the time of the crash, and allegedly lost control, according to deputies.

Officials say that the rear end of the Optima swung into the northbound lane, colliding with the front of a white Kia, driven by a man from Niles. 

Deputies say that children in both vehicles suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported by EMS to Niles Lakeland Hospital.

The crash remains under investigation, although officials determined that everyone involved were wearing seatbelts, and drugs and alcohol don't appear to be factors in the crash.
