WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — A woman is dead and another is in critical condition after a head-on crash on US-131 in Wyoming early Sunday morning.
Around 3:15 a.m., troopers with the Michigan State Police Grand Rapids Post were sent to northbound US-131 between 28th Street and Burton Street SW for a wrong-way crash.
Troopers learned that a 2014 Chrysler 200, driven by a 22-year-old Grand Rapids woman, was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes and crashed head-on with a 2019 Jetta. The Jetta was driven by a 21-year-old woman.
Both vehicles were then side-swiped by a tanker-truck that was behind the Jetta in the right lane, MSP said.
The 21-year-old Grand Rapids woman was taken to the hospital where she died, police say.
Family identified her to News 8 Tuesday as Willow Yon of Fowlerville, a third-year student at Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids studying industrial design. Friends said she was on her way home from work when the crash happened.
The 22-year-old Grand Rapids woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
The driver of the tanker was not hurt.
The northbound lanes of US-131 were closed for several hours.
