Father, Daughter From Indiana Killed in Oceana County Crash

A father and daughter from Indiana were killed when the SUV they were in drifted off the road and hit a tree in Oceana County.

The sheriff’s office says the SUV drifted off the road on US-31 near West Hammet Road around 9:45 Tuesday night.

Deputies say Casey Emmons was sitting in the front passenger seat.

She died at the scene.

Her dad, Mark Hezlep, was driving.

He was flown to a Grand Rapids hospital where he passed away.

Right now the sheriff’s office is trying to find out why they drifted off the road, but say Mark being tired could have played a role.
