Driver in Deadly Grand Traverse Co. Accident Faces Charges

A 25-year-old Williamsburg man will go to court following an accident that killed a 76-year-old woman earlier this month.

Back on Sept. 6, Marilyn Rice was walking south on Traversefield Drive when she was struck and killed by a pickup truck. Police said the driver wasn’t hurt in the accident.

After charges were authorized, Traverse City Police say the man turned himself in Thursday morning. He is currently in the Grand Traverse County Jail awaiting arraignment. He’s expected to face a misdemeanor charge for a moving violation causing death.
