LANSING TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WILX) - Three people were hospitalized Monday morning following a head-on collision in Lansing Township.

According to authorities, the crash happened just before 10:45 a.m. on Saginaw Street near Deerfield Avenue. Police said a westbound Volkswagen - driven by a 27-year-old man - crossed over into eastbound traffic and struck a Cadillac head-on.

The Cadillac was driven by a 68-year-old woman and contained her 30-year-old son, who was in the back seat with their dog.

All three people were seriously injured and were transported to a hospital, where they were listed in critical condition but are expected to survive.

The dog died from its injuries in the crash.

West Saginaw Street was closed in both directions for about three hours due to the crash.

The Lansing Township Fire Department said it was the second serious crash in the area within 24 hours.
