Leader photo/CRAIG HAUPERT — Three vehicles were involved in a crash at the intersection of US-12 and Red Bud Trail in Bertrand Township Monday afternoon.

Two children under the age of 3 years old were among six injured in a three-vehicle accident at the intersection of US-12 and Red Bud Trail in Bertrand Township at approximately 3 p.m. Monday.

Melisa Bernum, of the Michigan State Police, said luckily no one was seriously injured. All six people sustained minor injuries, such as neck and back pain, but no one was taken to the hospital.

Bernum said the accident occurred when the driver of a tan Buick LeSabre traveling east on US-12 disregarded a red traffic light and hit a white Toyota Camry that was heading north on Red Bud Trail through the intersection. Bernum said the driver of the Camry attempted to avoid the collision but was clipped by the Buick, which then spun around and came into contact with a grey Subaru Forester that was traveling west on US-12.

Bernum said three people were in the Buick, including the two young children. Two people were in the Camry and one in the Subaru.

Bernum said everyone was wearing seatbelts and the children were properly restrained in child seats, likely keeping this from being a more serious accident.

The names of those involved were not available by press time.
