OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP, Mich (WWJ) — Three people have been killed and two more critically injured in a head-on crash along southbound US-131 near Kalamazoo.

The crash happened around 4:30 p.m. Friday afternoon at the Stadium Dr. exit.

Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Paul Matyas told WWJ Newsradio 950 that a car and a pickup truck were involved in the crash.

“The truck was [traveling] southbound on US-131, so the the vehicle actually entered onto US-131 going northbound in the southbound lane,” Matyas said, “but only got maybe 100 feet or so and that’s where the head-on accident occurred.”

A woman in the backseat of the truck was killed, while two men in the car were also killed. Two men who were in the front of the truck are in critical condition.

The cause of the crash is still unknown.

Multiple departments assisted at the scene.
