SPARATA, Mich. — Michigan State Police are on the scene of a one car rollover accident just north of Sparta.

The road is now down to one lane.

Police say a Ford Tauras and a pickup truck were headed north on M 37 when they tried to pass slower vehicles.

M 37 is a two lane road.

Both vehicles entered the southbound lane to pass the other vehicles.

Oncoming traffic became a problem. The Taurus swerved back into the northbound lane, lost control, went in the ditch and flipped over.

Police say the Taurus was headed to Newaygo. All four people in the vehicle were taken to the hospital with injuries.

The severity of those injuries is unknown.

Police are reminding people that traffic is busy this holiday weekend and to be patient and safe.
