Hamburg Police and Fire Departments and Livingston County EMS were dispatched to a crash involving injuries on M-36, east of the Merrill Road intersection and traffic light. It happened around 9am Monday and upon arrival, crews found a two vehicle head-on collision involving a Ford Fusion and a Chevy Silverado.

A press release states both vehicles had substantial front-end damage and both drivers had life-threatening injuries. There were no other occupants in either vehicle.

The driver of the Silverado was transported by ambulance to the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor. The driver of the Fusion required significant extrication efforts to be removed from the vehicle and was transported to the same hospital via Survival Flight.
