An Ionia County woman could spend up to a year in prison if convicted on charges relating to a deadly crash last month.

Lisa Thursh, 40, faces misdemeanor charges including moving violation causing death and moving violation causing great bodily impairment for the April 5 crash at M-21 and Hawley Highway near Saranac, Ionia County prosecutor Kyle Butler said.

The former charge, if convicted, carries a one-year sentence.

Authorities say Thursh pulled into the path of a westbound semi-truck driven by Trevor Vanderwall. In an attempt to avoid a crash, Vanderwall veered into the eastbound lanes, which caused him to hit another semi-truck head on.

That truck was driven by 47-year-old Anthony Nunez, who was killed.

Thursh is considered innocent until proven guilty, Butler said.
