A three-car crash took place on Saturday afternoon on M-50 east of Dennison Road in Dundee Township, Michigan.
According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the three-car crash took place on 2:05 p.m.
A person identified as Corey James Sackett, 32, of Adrian was declared dead on the scene. James Beverly Glenn Jr., 65, of Inkster was flown by medical helicopter to Mercy St. Vincent Medical center in Toledo. He was pronounced dead at 7:55 p.m.
The initial investigation revealed that Sackett was operating a 2007 Saturn Aura eastbound on M-50. The Saturn left the roadway to the right for reasons yet to be known. Upon re-entering the roadway, the Saturn struck into the rear of a silver 2011 Ford Focus, which was also traveling eastbound and driven by a person identified as Andrew John Hoppenjans, 20, of Sylvania, Ohio.
The crash appears to have forced the Ford into the ditch on the south side of the roadway. The Saturn continued, crossing the centerline of M-50 before striking into a maroon 2007 Toyota Corolla, which was driven by Glenn, who was traveling westbound at the time of the accident.
Officials believe speed could have been a factor in the crash.
