The Cass County Sheriff's Office says 21-year-old Jordan White of Dowagiac and 4-year-old Wyatt Lister were killed when a car White was driving careened off of a roadway and slammed into several trees in Silver Creek Township near Dowagiac shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

The South Bend Tribune reports that the child's 20-year-old mother, Allisan Hurry, was airlifted to Memorial Hospital in South Bend with what the sheriff's department said were severe injuries.
