1 Killed, 8 Others Injured In Head-On Crash 5-23-2011

One person is dead and eight others were injured following a two-car crash in Midland County.
The crash occurred Saturday night on 9 Mile Road near Hines Road in Lee Township.
The sheriff’s office said 23-year-old Dean Alspaugh, of St. Louis, was driving a 1985 Chrysler when it crossed the center line and struck a southbound 2000 Chevrolet Blazer driven by 18-year-old Travis O’Keefe of Midland.
Deputies said Alspaugh was killed as a result of the crash. There were three passengers in Alspaugh’s vehicle. They have been identified as 16-year-old Melissa Simon, Cody Sehl and Jeremy Edgar, both 20.
Deputies said all three passengers were taken local hospitals. Their conditions were not released.
At the time of the crash, four passengers were traveling with O’Keefe.
Deputies said a 15-year-old Sanford teen was hospitalized, two 15-year-old Midland teens were treated and released and a 17-year-old Midland teen did not seek medical treatment. Those teens were identified later as Jessica Stanick, Haley Stoddard, Cody Adams and Andrew Ortiz.
O'Keefe, Adams and Stanick are members on the Bullock Creek High School track team.
Alcohol does appear to be a factor, Capt. Michael Goodall told TV5.
The crash remains under investigation and will be forwarded to the Midland County Prosecutor for review once it is completed.
