Sentencing in deadly crash delayed after letter claims of previous crash

Letter postpones sentencing in deadly crash

GRAND HAVEN, MICH. - The sentencing of a driver who caused a deadly crash in Holland Township was postponed on Monday, Nov. 20, 2017. 

The court received a letter over the weekend saying that Cameron Burrows, 41, was involved in a previous snowmobile crash that killed a child. The judge decided the information needed to be looked into before he could sentence Burrows.

Burrows pleaded no contest to reckless driving causing death in the January 3, 2017 crash that killed Sandra Deboer, 65, and badly injured her now 11-year-old grandson. Police say Burrows was traveling East on business I-196 when he ran a red light at 104th Avenue.

According to records, Burrows driver's license has been suspended nine times since 2000, and he has been cited for open intoxicants, failing to yield and speeding.  

He also faced misdemeanor charges in 2005 for driving with a suspended license.
