Authorities say two teenagers were killed and five others injured in a rollover crash that was caused by a suspected hit-and-run driver on a southeastern Michigan highway.

Police are seeking a minivan that was involved in the Friday afternoon accident on U.S. 23 in Washtenaw County's Pittsfield Township.

Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw tells The Detroit News authorities are seeking a light gray or silver Honda Odyssey with paper license plates. Police tell WWJ-AM the van likely has damage.

According to AnnArbor.com, Huron Valley Ambulance spokeswoman Joyce Williams says the teens died at the scene, and the others were taken to hospitals.

Police say the minivan struck a Ford Expedition carrying seven people, causing it to roll several times before coming to rest on its roof in the median.
