MACOMB TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Two drivers were killed Monday in a head-on crash involving a van and a pickup truck in Macomb County.

Police said the crash happened around 2:10 p.m. Monday (Jan. 30) on North Avenue, just south of Indian Trail, in Macomb Township.

A white GMC van was heading north on North Avenue as a red RAM headed south. The man driving the GMC was the only occupant of the van, and there were two people inside the pickup truck, according to authorities.

Officials said the vehicles collided head-on, killing both of the men who were driving. The passenger of the RAM was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.

It’s unknown if anyone was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, or whether drugs or alcohol were factors.

Deputies with the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the cause of the crash.

North Avenue was shut down between Indian Trail and Hagen Road during the investigation, but it reopened Monday evening.
