An Upper Peninsula woman is dead following a two vehicle crash in Sault Saint Marie.

State police say it happened around 5:45 Tuesday morning at the intersection of M-129 and M-80 in Chippewa County’s Pickford Township.

They say Suzette Steel of Detour Village was riding in a vehicle traveling north on M-129.

When the vehicle tried turning into a gas station at the corner of M-80, it was hit by another vehicle driving south.
