WYOMING, Mich. — A crash involving three vehicles left one person dead and sent five more to the hospital Sunday morning.

The incident occurred just before 10 a.m. at the intersection of 28th Street Southwest and Clyde Park Avenue Southwest.

The accident started when one vehicle ran a red light heading southbound on Clyde Park Ave and struck another car going westbound on 28th St. SW.

That collision caused the vehicles to strike another car going eastbound on 28th Street.

Debris from the collisions struck a pedestrian standing on the sidewalk at the SW corner of the intersection.

A total of five people were taken from the scene to local hospitals with varying levels of injuries.

The driver who ran the red light was pronounced dead at the hospital.

After previously being closed for investigation and clean-up, that intersection is now opened for road traffic.
