SPRINGFIELD, Mich. — Two people are injured and one is dead after a crash in Calhoun County that deputies say was caused by a man not stopping at a stop sign.

It happened about 10 a.m. Monday at the intersection of N. 30th Street and 6th Avenue in Springfield, according to a news release.

Deputies’ investigation showed a 42-year-old Battle Creek man was northbound on 6th Avenue and was hit by an eastbound vehicle, driven by a 70-year-old Battle Creek man, that didn’t stop at a stop sign.

The two occupants of the northbound vehicle, which overturned, had minor injuries, while the man in the eastbound vehicle sustained life-threatening injuries. He was taken to the hospital where he later passed away.

Springfield Fire and Lifecare Ambulance assisted at the scene.

The Calhoun County accident reconstruction team continues to investigate.
