Michigan State Police have identified two people killed in an Iosco County crash.

On Thursday, Oct. 10 at 3 p.m., troopers were sent to M-65, just north of Curtis Road in Plainfield Township.

The preliminary investigation shows that a northbound 2018 Dodge minivan crossed the centerline of the roadway into the path of a southbound Nissan Rogue.

Police said the Nissan tried to avoid the minivan, but the vehicles collided nearly head-on.

The minivan then rolled over and came to rest on its roof on the west side of the roadway.

Six people were inside the minivan driven by a 76-year-old man from California.

A passenger in the van, 70-year-old Tracy Carlson of Bakersfield, CA, died at the scene.

Another passenger, now identified as 73-year-old Rodger Carlson, passed away at the hospital.

The other four occupants inside the minivan were also injured.

The Nissan was driven by a 42-year-old woman from Hale. She was taken to a local hospital.

This incident remains under investigation.
