MILLBROOK TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A Greenville couple was hospitalized after a multi-vehicle crash that started when one of the cars crashed into a deer, according to the Mecosta County Sheriff's Office.

It happened Friday night around 10 p.m. on 30th Ave. near Jackson Rd. in Millbrook Township.

A 27-year-old man from Mount Pleasant was heading northbound when he hit a deer, which "disabled" his car in the middle of the road.

The 21-year-old Grant resident slowed down her vehicle when she saw the Mount Pleasant man's car stuck in the road.

Then, a southbound third vehicle hit the original "disabled" car, which then hit the vehicle driven by the 21-year-old woman.

All three vehicles received significant damage that have rendered them "non drivable."

The 62-year-old driver of the third vehicle and his 57-year-old wife, both from the Greenville area, were taken to the Big Rapids hospital, but are expected to be ok.

Deputies on scene were assisted by Mecosta Co. EMS as well as Millbrook-Rolland Fire and Rescue.
