The driver of the car, 18-year-old Dallas Leal from Lansing is hospitalized in serious condition. A passenger, 18-year-old Alfred White from Holt is also in the hospital in critical condition.

Investigators say Leal had swerved to avoid hitting a deer and lost control of the car. Ingham County Sheriff Lt. Vern Elliott says speed may have also been a factor.

It happened shortly after 10 p.m.
