Authorities say the drivers of a Toyota Prius and Chevy Blazer died from multiple trauma in a crash that killed three others and injured four in Livingston County's Green Oak Township.

The Washtenaw County medical examiner's office on Tuesday released the cause of death for 18-year-old Matthew Kolstoe of Okemos, just outside Lansing, and 62-year-old Cynthia Skutt of Fremont, Ohio.

Kolstoe was driving the Prius Sunday when the car crossed the U.S. 23 median and smashed into the oncoming Blazer.

Kolstoe's 19-year-old girlfriend, Heather Comstock of Okemos, and 18-year-old Sarina Seger of Williamston were killed. Another passenger survived.

Blazer passenger, 56-year-old Alfred King, also was killed. Three children in the Blazer were injured.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.

    I totally agree! No way will my children ever drive one of those cars! They are death traps! The teenager that survived is very lucky to be alive! Thankfully one of them survived. I still want to know what caused the driver to cross the median though.

    They keep showing the SUV, the news media is refusing by and large to show how disfigured and mutilated the little energy efficinet car looks. It;s really weird. Show the world what those cars look like after an accident... So people can see what they bough for cash for clunkers and their kids should not be driving them.
