Authorities: Michigan man apparently killed mother, self


A Mid-Michigan woman is dead after a two-vehicle crash.

It happened on Nov. 14 at 12:27 p.m. near the intersection of M-30 and Highwood Road in Gladwin County’s Hay Township.

The Sheriff’s Department reports that a 27-year-old Midland man driving a Dodge Sprinter van crossed the center line to avoid hitting cars that had stopped in the roadway to turn.

He then hit a Pontiac Grand Prix going the other way that was driven by 20-year-old Annmarie Strunk of Twining.

Strunk was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Midland man has non-life threatening injuries, his passenger, a 60-year-old Beaverton man was not hurt.

The crash is still under investigation, but alcohol and drugs are not considered factors.

Everyone was wearing their seatbelt.
