BUCHANAN — A horrific crash early Friday afternoon at North Main Street and Miller Road north of Buchanan left four people dead and two others injured. Police believe alcohol, a high rate of speed and a blown stop sign may have all contributed to the tragedy.

The crash occured at 12:07 p.m. in Buchanan Township, according to Berrien County Sheriff’s Lt. Steve Campbell, when a 2007 Ford Fusion traveling at high speeds apparently blew through the stop sign on Miller Road and struck a southbound 2000 Honda Accord on Main Street.
