Five people injured in car accident Sunday morning

Five people were taken to the hospital after their car crashed into a tree in St. Joseph County, Michigan.

It happened around 4 Sunday morning along Wattles Road in Colon Township, about a quarter of a mile west of the St. Joseph County-Branch County line.

Police say the driver lost control of the vehicle as it went around a curve, causing it to run off the roadway and hit a tree.

All five people inside were either air-lifted to area hospitals, or taken by ambulance. Investigators say both alcohol and speed may have been factors in the crash.
