Woman, 27, Dies After Crash With Tractor-Trailer 2-21-2011

A 27-year-old woman died following a crash Sunday evening with a tractor- trailer.
The crash occurred just before 6 p.m. at the intersection of Armstrong and Van Dyke roads in Lapeer County’s Goodland Township.
Lapeer County Sheriff officials say in a statement that 27-year-old Rachel Maria Diaz was pronounced dead at the scene Sunday. They say Diaz was riding in an eastbound 2002 Chrysler 300M that was struck by the northbound truck.
Deputies said Diaz's 5-year-old son, 9-year-old nephew and the car's 28-year-old driver, Jacob Wayne Jones of Hudson, Fla., were treated at a hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the tractor-trailer, 57-year-old David Rasmussen of Elkton, was not injured.
Police said Jones did not yield at a stop sign and weather may have been a factor, but alcohol and speed were not.
An investigation continues.
