SANILAC COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Several people were hurt in Sanilac County when the brakes of a trailer went out causing a three-vehicle crash.

The crash happened Thursday, Sept. 15 about 3:35 p.m. on Wildcat Road near the intersection of E. Mortimer Line Road in Worth Township.

Investigators said a 1982 green Chevy pickup driven by 21-year-old Nathan Guitar from Croswell was heading westbound on E. Mortimer Line Road when the brakes went out on the 2015 trailer he was hauling.

Police said Guitar was unable to stop at the stop sign and continued into the intersection at Wildcat Road where he was hit by a 2007 Dodge Caravan driven by 69-year-old Sandra Beach of Sandusky.

The van hit the pickup on its lefts side, pushing it into the southbound lane on Wildcat Road.

A 2014 black Jeep Cherokee driven by 74-year-old Arlene Karr of Sterling Heights was also heading northbound on Wildcat Road when the first crash occurred. The Cherokee hit the caravan on its right side and came to rest just south of the intersection.

The Dodge Caravan came to rest north of the intersection in the southbound lane and the pickup and trailer came to rest in the middle of the intersection facing eastbound.

The driver of the pickup and his passenger, 30-year-old Jeremy Chalut from Lexington, were taken to Port Huron McLaren Hospital by ambulance.

The driver of the van and her passenger, 73-year-old John Beach of Sandusky, were also taken to the hospital by EMS.

The driver of the Cherokee was checked out at the scene and released. 

The crash remains under investigation.
