Woman Dies, Man in Hospital After Crash in Leelanau County

One dead and another in the hospital: the result of a car crash in Suttons Bay Tuesday afternoon.

A woman in the passenger seat of a Dodge Durango was killed after the driver lost control of the vehicle.

It all happened around 2:30 Tuesday on M-22.

It shut down the highway between Revold and McAllister for a few hours Tuesday afternoon.

The car crossed the center line, barely missing another car, before flying into a ditch.

Both people in the car were taken to Munson Medical Center where the woman has since died.

“There was no late minute swerving of the vehicle, it just went across. No suspicion of any type of drug or alcohol or any type of influencing factor at this point, but again its under investigation and we’ll have more in the future,” Leelanau County Sheriff Mike Borkovich said.

M-22 was reopened late Tuesday afternoon.
