A woman and her two children were severely injured after a crash in Tuscola County.

It happened on Thursday, Oct. 5 at about 6:14 a.m. on Deckerville Road near Dodge Road in Novesta Township.

Investigators said a 41-year-old Deford woman was driving a Chevy Malibu eastbound on Deckerville Road when the car veered onto the shoulder. The car then came back onto the road sideways and was hit broadside by a pickup heading westbound on Deckerville.

Police said all three occupants of the Malibu, including two children – ages 13 and 9 – were severely injured in the crash. One child was airlifted to an area hospital, according to officials. Their conditions were unknown Friday.

The driver of the pickup, a 25-year-old Decker woman, and her three children – ages 4, 5 and 9 – suffered only minor injuries.

The Tuscola County Sheriff's Accident reconstruction team responded and the accident is still under investigation.
