Five hurt in St. Joe County, MI accident

Posted:

Five people are recovering after a weekend accident in St. Joseph County, Michigan.

It happened just after 4 a.m. on Wattles Road in Colon Township, just a quarter mile from the Branch County line. Police say the driver was heading west and lost control on a curve before running off the road and hitting a tree.

All five people were taken to the hospital, some by ambulance and others by helicopter. Police tell FOX 28 they believe alcohol and speed may have both been factors in the crash. The accident is still under investigation.
