Two people are dead following an early Saturday morning crash in Macomb County’s Clinton Township.

Police say a 2003 Dodge Stratus traveling northbound on Gratiot ran a red light, striking a light colored 2002 Chevy Avalanche.

The driver of the Dodge, a 24-year-old male from Macomb, died as a result of the crash. A 45 year-old St. Clair Shores resident, driver of the Chevy Avalanche, also died of injuries sustained from the crash.

The identities of both drivers are being withheld until family is notified.

Police closed northbound Gratiot at westbound Hall Road until 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

The crash is an open investigation and anyone with information should call Lt. Greene at 586-493-7894.
