Three killed in accident in VanBuren County, Mich.

Three people, including two students of Vicksburg Public Schools, were killed in an accident on 94th Avenue in Porter Township Thursday morning in a single vehicle accident.

Deputies responded at 8:10 a.m. to 94th Avenue and 18 1/2 Street after the driver failed to negotiate a curve and struck a tree, according to the Van Buren County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies believe the accident happened a significant amount of time before the accident was called in. The vehicle was cool and the car was in a heavily wooded area off the road.

All three were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver was a 21 year old male from Vicksburg.

The passengers were a 15-year-old male and a 16-year-old female from Vicksburg.

Vicksburg School administrators have been notified to make grief counselors available at school on Friday.
