The Kalamazoo County sheriff’s office says in a statement Thursday that Lawrence White of Kalamazoo died following the midday crash Wednesday.

Seven children and four other adults were injured. The department says they were hurt when a vehicle driven by an 18-year-old Kalamazoo man crossed the median on U.S. 131 in Kalamazoo Township and struck two other vehicles headed in the opposite direction.

White was a passenger in the vehicle that crossed the median.

Ages of the injured children range from six months to 13 years old. Authorities say their injuries were not life-threatening. The adults range in age from 18 to 57.

The crash remains under investigation.
