CASS COUNTY, Mich. — A head-on collision Friday afternoon sent one girl to the hospital, according to the Cass County Sheriff’s Department.

It happened at the intersection of Bellows Road and Sweet Road. An investigation at the scene showed that Sara Emily Messenger, a 17-year-old from White Pigeon, was driving northbound when her car crossed the center line and crashed into a southbound vehicle driven by Andrew Thomas Dubois, 31, also from White Pigeon.

Messenger was transported to Elkhart General Hospital for her minor injuries. Dubois refused treatment at the scene.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor at this time, and both drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of impact.

The crash remains under investigation at this time.
