Posted: Updated:

After two people died in a crash near a Grand Traverse County intersection this weekend, people who live nearby say this has happened too much; a different crash happened at the same intersection a few years back. Today, 9&10 News searched for answers on what's behind the crashes there; the Summit City, Sparling intersection is near Kingsley.

David Pipoly and his daughter, Christa, were killed there early Sunday morning. Troopers say a county plow truck collided with their SUV after David failed to stop. The plow driver was taken to the hospital, and Christa's Sister, Noelle, who was also in the car, was treated and released.

In this 9&10 News investigates report, Sara Simnitch, and Photojournalist, Jeremy Erickson, talked with neighbors and Michigan State Police about the history of the intersection.
