PORTAGE, Mich. — A person died and another was critically injured Wednesday in a head-on crash in Portage.

Portage police say the crash happened in the 9100 block of S. Sprinkle Road when a northbound pick-up truck crossed the center line and collided with a southbound vehicle.

The southbound vehicle left the road and went into a nearby swamp.  The female driver of that vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.  Her name was not released.

The driver of the pick-up truck was critically injured.

The road was closed for several hours after the crash but has since reopened.
