A Michigan woman is dead following a three-car crash in Easton Township on the afternoon of April 25. An adult and two children involved in the accident suffered injuries and were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment. According to the report, the accident happened shortly after 1:30 p.m. just outside of Ionia as a 70-year-old Ionia man driving a southbound Chevy Suburban on N. State Road smashed into to the back of a Ford Fusion, which was stopped as the driver, a 71-year old woman, was waiting to turn left. The impact forced the Fusion into the opposite lane and into the path of a Jeep Cherokee, killing the Fusion driver.
Rescue personnel who arrived at the scene took several injured passengers in the Jeep to local hospitals. None of their injuries were fatal, as reported. The driver of the Jeep, a 29-year-old man from Ionia, did not report any injuries and was not taken to the hospital.
The investigation into the wreck was ongoing at the time of reporting. Authorities said that they do not believe that speed or alcohol played a role in the accident.
Serious car accidents can leave people with catastrophic injuries that require lengthy periods of medical care and treatment. Those who have been injured due to another driver's negligence might consider seeking compensation for their losses by filing a personal injury lawsuit with the assistance of an experienced attorney. Compensation awarded to plaintiffs who prevail in such cases could include medical expenses, income losses, and pain and suffering.
