BRIGHTON, Mich. (AP) - Investigators believe alcohol was a factor in a two-vehicle crash that killed five people last week in southeastern Michigan.

Toxicology reports aren’t done yet. But state police made the disclosure Monday while updating the conditions of three survivors. The drivers of each car are in stable condition, along with a 23-year-old passenger.

Police say a car driven by 22-year-old Matthew Carrier didn’t stop at a sign and struck an SUV on Michigan Highway 59 in Livingston County. Two people in Carrier’s vehicle were killed.

Three people in the other vehicle also died, including a probation agent who had been honored that same night at a Corrections Department banquet.

Police say Carrier and the other driver, 39-year-old Albert Boswell, didn’t have a valid driver’s license.
