A van and a truck have collided in southeastern Michigan, killing two persons and injuring eight others.

Michigan State Police say the crash Friday afternoon in Monroe County's Frenchtown Township left a 60-year-old man in the van dead at the scene, and a 66-year-old woman later died at a hospital.

Except for the driver of the truck, all of those injured were riding in the van, which was carrying seven people with developmental disabilities and two other people.
