Two Teens Injured After Head-On Collision In Orion Township

(CBS DETROIT) - Two teens were injured, and one is in critical condition, after a head-on crash between two vehicles, according to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.

On Sunday, Feb. 20, at about 9:20 p.m., officers responded to reports of a crash on Clarkston Road near Beach Drive in Orion Township.

Police say a 16-year-old was driving west on Clarkston in a 2004 Ford Ranger when it collided with a 2013 Ford F-350 that was heading east.

The vehicles crashed in a no-passing zone, and officials say they believe the individual driving the Ranger crossed over the centerline.

The 16-year-old driver is in critical condition, and his 17-year-old passenger was released from the hospital. Police say neither of the teens were wearing seatbelts.

A 21-year-old was driving the F-350, and he was not injured. Police say he was wearing a seatbelt.

Police suspect alcohol was involved, and they took a blood sample from the 16-year-old driver.

The driver of the F-350 was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
