Four people were injured when a 13-year-old driver crashed a vehicle into a tree Sunday in Clinton County.
The crash happened shortly after 9 a.m. on East Price Road near Shepardsville Road in Victor Township, according to a statement from the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office.
A 13-year-old boy driving a minivan westbound left the roadway and hit a tree, said Lt. Jeff Clarke, a spokesman for the department.
It wasn't immediately clear why the St. Johns boy was driving, he said.
The boy and his occupants, a 64-year-old Laingsburg woman and two St. Johns children, ages 5 and 17, were injured in the crash. They were taken to Sparrow Hospital and expected to be released Monday, Clarke said.
The woman, who is a grandmother to the other three, was sitting in the front passenger seat while the 13-year-old was driving, he said.
The crash remains under investigation, and Clarke said the woman could be charged with child endangerment or other crimes.
