Two Vehicle Crash In TC, Kills One, Injures Others

A head on crash in Traverse City leaves one dead and another seriously hurt tonight.

The two vehicle crash happened around noon along South Long Lake Road.

Grand Traverse County Sheriff's deputies say Thomas Wayne Dawson crossed over the center line and hit a utility vehicle head on, killing Dawson.

Deputies say it's a curvy road and drivers need to be careful.

Business owners along the road say they often hear cars speeding by and tires screeching.

“Gotta be real careful people come around the curve going 65-70mph and you gotta be cautious and quick.”

Deputies say the driver of the utility vehicle wasn't seriously hurt, but was taken to the hospital to be checked out.
