CHARLESTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A van carrying prisoners crashed with another vehicle Tuesday on I-94 in southwestern Michigan, authorities said.

Several people were taken to Kalamazoo hospitals with injuries, the Kalamazoo County sheriff's office said.

The van was operated by U.S. Corrections, a Charlotte, North Carolina, company that transports prisoners across the country. The van was westbound on I-94 in Kalamazoo County, just west of Battle Creek, when it collided with another vehicle.
