Byron man hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after Deerfield Township crash

One person is hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of North Latson and Faussett roads in Deerfield Township.

Deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the crash site at approximately 1:38 p.m. Saturday, July 31, 2021. The preliminary investigation revealsĀ  that a 29-year-old Perry woman was driving a 2007 Honda Element north bound on North Latson Road with a male passenger. After stopping at the intersection, the driver continued north, crossing Faussett Road; she did not see a 2008 Chevrolet Suburban traveling west on Faussett Road and approaching the intersection. The Chevrolet driver, a 17-year-old Fenton male, was unable to stop before striking the Honda on the passenger side of the vehicle.

The passenger in the Honda, a 37-year-old Byron man who was trapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated by fire personnel, was transported to Genesys Hospital by Livingston County EMS with life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Honda was transported by Livingston County EMS to Genesys Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Chevrolet was treated and released at the scene.

Both drivers and the passenger were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.

The intersection of North Latson and Faussett roads was partially closed for approximately 3 hours during the extrication and investigation.

Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the crash. The crash remains under investigation by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
