LYON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say three people have died in crashes on roads left slick by snow and ice in southern Michigan.

The Oakland County sheriff’s department says 36-year-old Pedro Montanez of New Hudson was driving his three children to Kent Lake Elementary School when he hit ice and struck an oncoming pickup truck about 8 a.m. Tuesday.

It happened in Lyon Township, about 30 miles west-northwest of Detroit.

The department says the crash killed Montanez and his 9-year-old son Steven and injured his 10-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter. The truck’s driver escaped injury.

In southwestern Michigan, the Kalamazoo County sheriff’s department says a 51-year-old Kalamazoo woman died Tuesday morning when she crossed the center line and hit another vehicle in Comstock Township. The other driver was treated at a hospital.
