ALLEGAN COUNTY, Mich. — A four-car crash in Allegan County on Saturday left one dead and multiple injured, Michigan State Police at the Wayland Post say.
The cars were traveling on US-131 near the 55 mile marker in Martin Township.
After talking with witnesses, police believe the Chevy Tahoe's driver was speeding and rear-ended a Mercury passenger car that was stopped in the roadway due to construction traffic.
The driver of the Mercury was identified as Diana Thornton, a 65-year-old woman from Bremen, Indiana. She suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital where she later died.
The driver of the Tahoe was identified as a 35-year-old man from Kalamazoo. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Two more cars were involved in the crash due to a chain reaction from the Tahoe's impact. No one else was seriously injured. Both drivers, a 27-year-old man and a 56-year-old woman, are from Kalamazoo.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor and everyone involved in the crash was wearing their seatbelts.
The incident remains under investigation.
