VAN BUREN CO., Mich.—Three people, including two young children, were hurt when a driver lost control of her car and hit a tree Monday morning.
The Van Buren County Sheriff's Office says that Patricia Jose-Mendoza, 25, was traveling in the area of CR-352 (Territorial Rd.) and CR-681 just before 7:30 a.m. when she lost control of her car and went off the road into a tree.
Investigators say that light rain, combined with inadequate tread on the tires of the Plymouth Neon made it impossible to control the car on the wet roads.
All three occupants are said to have non-life threatening injuries.
