CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities say two car crashes caused the intersection of Broadmoor Avenue and 60th Street to close for several hours Wednesday night and into early Thursday morning.

The Michigan State Police say it happened around 8:20 p.m. Wednesday.

They say the first crash happened when a car heading eastbound on 60th Street and another car heading westbound on the same road hit head-on.

A man in the westbound car got out to check on his wife and 6-month-old child when his car was hit a second time by a car driving north on Broadmoor Avenue. The man’s car then hit him, throwing him into the air about 15 feet, troopers say.

They say both the mother and father suffered serious injuries but are stable. The baby was taking to the hospital and will be OK.

The eastbound driver, a woman, is suffering serious injuries but is also in stable condition.

The driver of the northbound car was not injured.

The road was closed for around four hours while authorities investigated and worked to clear the scene.

Authorities do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the two crashes.
