Girl who died in crash was two days away from birthday

Posted: Updated:

We have new details in Saturday's death of a Bay City Central student.

Autumn Elwell was only two days away from her 17th birthday when she died. Autumn was a passenger in a car that was backing up on I-96 near Grand Rapids because the driver missed an exit.

The Grand Rapids Press reports that as the car crossed the highway to get to the exit, a semi crashed into the driver's side door.

The driver of the car was Elwell's sister, 25-year-old Ashley Donnelly of Bay City.

She remains hospitalized.

Arrangements are being handled by Gephart Funeral Home in Bay City.
