GAINES TWP., Mich. — Sunday afternoon, the Dutton Fire Department (DFD) responded to a rear-end collision that left five people in need of medical attention.

Just after 1:00 today, DFD was dispatched to a two-vehicle crash in the 10400 Block of Patterson Avenue.

Upon arrival, officers found multiple people with various degrees of injuries.

EMS was called to the scene to manage the patient load.
