One person is dead after a two vehicle accident in St. Joseph County on Thursday evening.

It happened around 6:30 p.m. at the intersection of Tyler and Oak Road. That is near Marshall County.

Police tell Newscenter 16 that one car was going northbound on Oak, and the other car was headed westbound on Tyler.

Police say the car of the driver on Oak probably failed to yield at a stop sign. The car on Tyler was t-boned by the car, hitting the driver's side door.

That driver was pronounced dead at the scene, and two others were transported to the hospital.

Power crews were called out after one of the cars hit a utility pole, causing the pole to bend.

Police continue to investigate.
