Associated Press

Egleston Township, Mich. — Police in western Michigan say three people were killed when their SUV failed to yield at an intersection and was hit by a pickup truck in Muskegon County.

The Muskegon Chronicle says the crash happened about 10 a.m. Wednesday in Egleston Township, east of Muskegon. It says a male driver and two female passengers in the SUV died.

Police say the driver and a passenger in the pickup truck were injured. There’s no immediate word on their conditions.

State police Sgt. Doug Roesler says the SUV was on a road with a stop sign, but there’s no stop sign on the road the pickup was on.

Area resident Janet Rogers says it’s a problem intersection that needs a flashing light because the stop sign’s “really hard to see.”
