BETHEL TOWNSHIP, BRANCH COUNTY, MI (WTVB)- One person was seriously injured Tuesday morning in Branch County southwest of Coldwater when two pickup trucks collided at an intersection in Bethel Township. A witness to the crash shortly before 10 a.m. said one of the pickups was westbound on Central Road and failed to yield at a stop sign and struck the other truck, which was northbound on Block Road.

The northbound pickup ended up on its side with the driver pinned beneath the truck. After being freed from the wreckage, he was flown from the scene by Good Samaritan Helicopter from Ft. Wayne Parkview Hospital for treatment. The other driver appeared to have suffered very minor injuries.

The Branch County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the accident.
