Shortly after Michigan's home win over Notre Dame on Saturday, two fans parked at a nearby high school were injured from an arch collapse. They are in critical condition.

Ann Arbor's Pioneer High School sits just about a half-mile from Michigan Stadium. The school provides parking on Wolverines football game days.

At around 10:45 p.m. ET, per police, an arch at the school collapsed injuring the two people. Per, they were taken to University of Michigan Emergency Room.

According to the report, local authorities don't have any updates on the status of the two injured people beyond that of their condition.

Michigan scored a major 45-14 win, just its second over a top 10 team during the Jim Harbaugh era. The game was played in pretty rough, wet conditions, and wind was a factor all game, which probably helps explain the collapse.

On the afternoon, Michigan's Shea Patterson attempted just 12 passes, throwing for 100 yards. Harbaugh and his staff clearly tailored the game plan to the conditions, and Michigan ran the ball 57 times for 303 yards and three touchdowns on the night.

Notre Dame, meanwhile, managed just 133 passing yards on 29 attempts.

We'll have more on the fans' condition as its released. There is very little info on the situation out there right now. Hopefully their injuries do not wind up being too serious, and they're able to make quick, full recoveries.
