7.23.15: 3 die when SUV fails to yield, hit by pickup truck
EGLESTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Police in western Michigan say three elderly people were killed when their SUV failed to yield at an intersection and was hit by a pickup truck in Muskegon County.
The Muskegon Chronicle happened about 10 a.m. Wednesday in Egleston Township, east of Muskegon. It says the crash killed 82-year-old driver Allen Ames of Casnovia, his 84-year-old wife Jolene Ames and 85-year-old Beatrice Amen of Ravenna.
Police say the driver and a passenger in the pickup truck were injured. There’s no immediate word on their conditions.
State police Sergeant Doug Roesler says the SUV was on a road with a stop sign, but there’s no stop sign on the road the pickup was on.
Area resident Janet Rogers says it’s a problem intersection that needs a flashing light.
