Ohio woman dies in crash in sand dunes at Michigan park

Golden Township, Mich. — An Ohio woman has died while riding in a Jeep Wrangler in sand dunes at a Michigan park.

The Oceana County sheriff’s office says the 2012 Wrangler flipped Saturday at Silver Lake State Park, killing 49-year-old Leslyn Yowell of Grove City, Ohio. Her husband was driving.

Yowell was wearing a seat belt in the back seat of the vehicle.

The park is a popular place for off-road vehicles because of the sand dunes. It has four miles of Lake Michigan shore.
