Three people were injured in a two vehicle crash Saturday in Coldwater Township.

Smith was taken to the Community Health Center of Branch County for treatment. His passenger, 35 year old Jamie Smith was pinned in the vehicle. She was removed by the Coldwater Fire Department and flown by Samaritan Air Ambulance to Samaritan Hospital in Fort Wayne.

Bretschneider was flown from the scene by West Michigan Air Care to Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo. Her condition along with the Smith's is not being released by hospital personnel.
