      Three people were taken to area hospitals on Friday after a two car accident in Oceana County.

      Michigan State Police Troopers responded to the accident on US 31 near Polk Road.

      Authorities say both vehicles were driving northbound when one vehicle struck the other from behind at a high rate of speed. That crash caused both vehicles to leave the road and roll over, ejecting one person.

      A 19-year-old man from Shelby, and a 52-year-old man and 57-year-old woman, both from Leslie, were taken to area hospitals with serious injuries.

      As of Sunday afternoon authorities did not have updates on the conditions of the people involved in the crash or the investigation.

      Police do not yet know if drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.
