Serious Injury Traffic Crash, One Individual in Critical Condition
From the Michigan State Police - Alpena Post:

On January 30, 2016 at approximately 11:19 p.m. Troopers from the Alpena Post responded to a report of a two vehicle traffic crash on M-32 near Baker Road in Montmorency County. The preliminary investigation found that a vehicle traveling east on M-32 was traveling at a high rate of speed when the driver apparently lost control, crossed the center line and was then struck broadside by a west bound pickup truck that was towing an enclosed trailer. The driver of the east bound car was a 20 year old man from Westmont, Illinois. There were no passengers in his vehicle. He was initially transported to Otsego Memorial Hospital and later transferred to Saginaw Covenant Hospital where he is in critical condition. The driver of the west bound truck, a 37 year old male from Maple City, MI, and his passenger, a 46 year old male from Tecumseh, Ontario, were both treated for minor injuries at Otsego Memorial Hospital and were later released.

All involved were in the area for the Sno-Drift Rally races that took place in Montmorency County over the weekend. The 20 year was a spectator and the occupants of the truck were competitors in the races. The trailer they were towing at the time of the crash contained their rally car.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this incident.

This crash is still under investigation. No further information is available at this time.
