TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Two men are dead and another was injured in a car crash in Dundee Township on Saturday.

It happened around 2:05 p.m. Saturday in Dundee Township on M-50, east of Dennison Road, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the sheriff’s office, 32-year-old Cory James Sackett from Adrian drove off the road in a Saturn Aura then swerved back and crashed into the back of a Ford Focus, driven by 20-year-old Andrew John Hoppenjans from Sylvania. The initial crash sent the Focus into a ditch on the side of the road.

After striking the back of the Focus, police said Sackett kept going, crossed the center line, and hit a Toyota Corolla driven by 65-year-old James Beverly Glenn Jr. from Inkster.

Authorities said Sackett was pronounced dead at the scene. Glenn was airlifted to a nearby hospital where he later died.

Hoppenjans suffered minor injuries.

Sheriff Troy Goodnough said excessive speed appears to be a factor in the crash. It remains under investigation.

Anyone who might have information is asked to call 734-240-7557.
