PORT HURON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say an 83-year-old man who was driving the wrong way on Interstate 69 in Michigan and the 81-year-old passenger in his vehicle have died following a crash.

St. Clair County sheriff’s Lt. Jim Terpening tells the Times Herald of Port Huron (https://bwne.ws/1YlRVm2 ) that the Clarkston man was going westbound in the eastbound lanes on Sunday night when he collided head-on with an eastbound vehicle in Port Huron Township.

Terpening says five people in the eastbound vehicle were injured, including a 46-year-old man who was driving, two 46-year-old women, a 16-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy. They were taken to a hospital for treatment. Names of those involved weren’t immediately released.

The freeway was closed for about three hours after the crash, which happened about 55 miles northeast of Detroit.
