Woman Charged in Connection with Fatal Michigan Car Accident

A 45-year-old woman is facing charges in connection with a fatal Michigan Auto Accident. Records indicate the crash occurred at 11:25 a.m. on April 29, at the intersection of Crawford Lake Road NE and County Road 612 in Kalkaska County.

A story released by M Live explains a 28-year-old coach was operating a van carrying the Grayling High School Golf team to a tournament. As the van began to pass through the intersection with 612, the woman entered the intersection at the same time in her Ford Windstar van carrying a 27-year-old female passenger. Both vehicles could not stop in time and collided.

The coach and an 18-year-old passenger in the golf team’s van were killed, while the passenger in the other van died at the scene as well.

Now, prosecutors have charged the woman responsible for the crash with several crimes, including three counts of manslaughter, three counts of moving violation causing death, and one count of child abuse

While criminal charges may hold the woman accountable for her actions, it may not reimburse the families of the victims for their losses. Accident victims and their families have a right to pursue civil litigation to obtain compensation for such losses.
