Three people are in stable condition after the car they were driving in veered off the roadway and struck a tree on Bell Road south of South Huron on Saturday.

Alcohol or drugs, as well as speeding, appear to be a factor in the crash, Public Safety Director Everette Robbins said.

When emergency personnel responded to the scene at about 2 p.m., they found a 39-year-old man and his two sons, 16 and 10, pinned inside of the car.

After firefighters used the jaws of life to extract the children from the car, the 16-year-old passenger was transported to University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor using a life flight helicopter.

The driver and his other son were also transported to the same hospital.

“Our prayers are with the two young boys. This could have had a much worse ending,” Robbins said.

“It is very fortunate that our first responders were on the scene quickly. They train for situations like this and acted quickly which may have saved a life.”

Michigan State Police accident reconstruction team assisted at the scene and the crash is still under investigation.
