Two people are in the hospital after a roll over crash in Lansing.

It happened around 1:30 a.m.  Sunday morning at the intersection of Cavanaugh Road and Aurelius Road.

Police tell us a driver was traveling eastbound on Cavanaugh Road when he ran a blinking red light. He then smashed into a car crossing the intersection on Aurelius, causing that car to flip over.

Two people were inside the car that rolled over.

Both were taken to the hospital with serious injuries, but they are expected to be okay.

Police believe both drivers were under the influence of alcohol, so charges against them are pending.
