Police: 3 drivers arrested for OWI after 3-vehicle crash

Mount Pleasant police were called to a three-vehicle crash near Durand Avenue and Sheridan Road around 2:45 a.m. Sunday.

Upon arrival, officers found one vehicle fully engulfed in flames and two other cars with heavy damage.

An investigation found that a 2011 Ford F250 was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes on Sheridan. A 2000 GMC Yukon SUV was traveling northbound on Sheridan and attempted to prevent a collision but was unsuccessful.  The F250 struck the Yukon head-on. Due to the severity of the collision, the Yukon burst into flames.
