HOWARD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – An unidentified driver injured three people in a head-on collision Saturday morning and didn’t stay around to wait for deputies to arrive, according to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.

The crash happened at the intersection of M-51 and Warren Road. Investigators said 56-year-old Vicky Light, of Niles, was driving southbound on M-51 when another driver collided with her car head on. 57-year-old Brad Light was in the passenger seat. According to deputies, both said the driver at fault, traveling northbound, veered into their lane.

First responders transported the couple by ambulance to South Bend Memorial Hospital.

The driver, who officials said caused the crash, left the scene, but the passenger of that car stayed behind. Authorities identified her as Kimberly McCann, a 31-year-old Shipshewana resident. McCann was also taken to South Bend Memorial Hospital for her injuries.

Deputies said alcohol does appear to be a factor in the crash.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.
