Two people were killed after a crash in Gladwin County Wednesday night.

According to the Gladwin County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a personal injury crash near the intersection of Calhoun Road and Grout Road around 10:50. Investigators say a 2009 Escalade, occupied by a 42-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman from Beaverton, was travelling west on Calhoun Road, when it went into the ditch at a high rate of speed and overturned multiple times. Authorities say both occupants were ejected from the vehicle.
