Mecosta County Crash Leaves Two People in Critical Condition

Two people are in critical condition after a serious crash in Mecosta County.

The Mecosta County Sheriff’s Office says a pickup truck was traveling south on 30th Avenue, just south of Remus, before 4 p.m. Sunday when it tried to make a U-turn after pulling onto 5 Mile Road.

The pickup truck then drove into the path of a tractor trailer, which then struck the pickup truck broadside.

While the driver of the tractor trailer had only minor injuries, the two people in the pickup truck were airlifted to the hospital, where they are both listed in critical condition.

Deputies say speed and alcohol don’t appear to be factors in the crash.
