Woman, 86, dies in crash in Warren
Warren — An 86-year-old woman died in a crash Wednesday morning.
Alcohol was not a factor in the 8:20 a.m. incident, according to Deputy Commissioner Louis Galasso.
“The collision occurred at the intersection of Chicago and Hoover,” Galasso said. “The 86-year-old lady was traveling alone in a 2003 Mercury Sable when she attempted to make a left turn onto northbound Hoover from eastbound Chicago. She failed to see an ongoing vehicle, which hit her car broadside.
“That vehicle — a 2005 Ford Escape — was driven by a 25-year-old woman from Macomb Township.”
According to Galasso, the victim died at the scene.
“Sadly she lived on Chicago only about a block from the intersection,” Galasso said. “I’m sure she must have driven through that intersection a million times.”
The Macomb Township woman received minor injuries in the crash but was shaken emotionally, according to Galasso.
“She was taken to St. John Macomb Hospital for observation,” Galasso said.“Both drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.”
Police are withholding the name of the deceased pending notification of next of kin.
