COURTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A Rockford woman was killed and three others were hospitalized following a crash northeast of Rockford Monday.
The crash, which happened just before 6 p.m., shut down the intersection of Tefft Road and 13 Mile Road in Courtland Township for hours.
The Kent County Sheriff’s Department says its preliminary investigation found 68-year-old Ann Vandommelen was heading south in her 2016 Nissan Murano when she failed to obey a stop sign, leading to the collision.
Vandommelen died at the scene.
The driver of the other SUV, a 44-year-old Cedar Springs man, was taken to the hospital with possible broken bones, but is expected to survive. His 38-year-old passenger and 9-year-old passenger suffered minor injuries, according to the sheriff’s office.
One of the vehicles hit a utility pole, knocking out power to more than 100 Consumers Energy customers in the area. Service was expected to be restored by around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.
