(MASON TOWNSHIP) – A Union man was killed and two others injured in a crash between a pickup truck and a semi.
Cass County Sheriff Joseph Underwood says 54 year old Jon Stone of Union and his passenger 48 year old Donald Bardo were driving south on Five Points Road at 8:20 Thursday morning, when Stone failed to yield to a westbound semi on Old M-205 and the vehicles collided.
Stone was pronounced dead at the scene. Bardo and the semi driver, 50 year old Robert Arnold of Sparta, Michigan, were both taken to Elkhart General Hospital for treatment of their injuries.
