At 11:30am, a car containing two people driving north on U.S. 131 lost control on the bridge over the Manistee River, possibly due to ice, and entered the oncoming lane before colliding with another vehicle that was driving south. The two people in the northbound vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene, while the two people in the other vehicle were both taken to a hospital. Check back for updates.
