Single vehicle crash sends two people to hospital

The Cass County Sheriff's Department responded to a single vehicle accident on M-40 Sunday afternoon.

The call came in at 2:34 p.m. about an accident just south of Teasdale Lake Street in Porter Township.

Deputies say 19-year-old Jesus Arrey of Kalamazoo, Michigan was heading south on M-40 when he attempted to pass an R.V. in a no passing zone.

Deputies say Arrey was traveling at a high rate of speed when passing the other vehicle.

Arrey swerved to miss an oncoming vehicle and ran off the side of the road.

The vehicle overturned multiple times.

Both Arrey and a passenger, 22-year-old Latasha Osborn of Kalamazoo, Michigan were injured in the crash.

They were taken to Elkhart General Hospital for treatment.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor. 

Michigan State Police, Porter Ambulance and Fire Department and Edwardsburg Ambulance assisted at the scene.
