LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Authorities have released the names of two people who died in a weekend crash on a mid-Michigan highway.

Lansing police say 26-year-old Jason Lee Betcher of Lansing and 29-year-old Zachary Ryan Whiting died Saturday on U.S. 127. Investigators say they received reports of a vehicle driving the wrong way on the highway and then that vehicle and three others involved in a crash.

Police earlier said that the two people who died were drivers, including the one traveling north in the highway’s southbound lanes. An investigation into the cause continues, but police have that the vehicle going the wrong way likely led to the initial impact.

In a statement Monday morning, police said no additional details were available.
