Two students were injured, one severely, in a rollover accident at Oak and Fourth streets Tuesday morning.
According to Police Chief Daniel Grant, a 17-year-old was driving a Ford Ranger with his 16-year-old girlfriend inside at about 7:45 a.m.
Their truck was westbound on Oak when it struck a vehicle being driven by an elderly woman headed south on Fourth, causing the Ford Ranger to roll over.
"As (the Ranger) entered the intersection, the elderly lady was about to enter the intersection and there was a two-car collision," Grant said. "The Ford Ranger rolled onto its roof."
The teen driver, who is a senior at Roosevelt, was airlifted to Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit with non-life threatening leg injuries, Grant said. A hospital spokeswoman said he is listed in serious condition.
His girlfriend, who is a junior at Roosevelt, was treated and released from after suffering minor injuries. The elderly woman was uninjured, Grant said.
The 16-year-old girl said she is OK, but hurt her neck and head.
"Today was probably one of the scariest things I've ever been through in my life, but we made it," she wrote in a Facebook message. "God's grace is always with us."
School Superintendent Carla Harting said grief counselors are on hand to talk with students.
"In these types of cases, we make sure if there are problems with students and students have issues, we have social workers and counselors on hand and available to talk to them," she said.
The accident had Oak, between Second and Fifth streets, closed for a few hours.
