Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - A single vehicle accident along U.S. 127 has left one dead and another in critical condition with life threatening injuries.

It happened around 6:30a.m. on Wednesday near Grand River Avenue. Police say the vehicle was traveling south on U.S. 127 when it crossed into the northbound lane, rolled and stopped in northbound traffic.

Zachary Clark, 19, from Laingsburg was driving the SUV and died from his injuries during the accident. Logan Winn, 19, from Perry is in critical condition at Sparrow Hospital. Both were 2012 graduates from Perry High School and played on the football team.

Police say the two were on their way to work at the time of the accident.

The accident backed up traffic for hours, causing drivers delays that they report lasted up to an hour and a half. Both lanes of traffic have since been re-opened.

Officials are still investigating the cause of the crash, but say neither men were wearing their seatbelt at the time of the accident. They say alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors.

They're asking for anyone who may have witnessed the crash to come forward. If you saw anything, call Lansing Township Police Department at 517-485-1700.
