ALTO, Mich. (WZZM) – Two people were killed and two others hurt in a crash Saturday afternoon in eastern Kent County.
The accident happened around 4:45 p.m. at Pratt Lake Avenue and 64th Street, south of Lowell.
Kent County Sheriff's deputies say 78-year old Hazel Scobey of Middleville, rolled a Chrysler Town & Country minivan through a stop sign at the intersection and in front of a pick-up truck, which had the right-of-way. The force of the collision caused both vehicles to rollover.
Scobey and her passenger, 63-year old Lois Peterson, also of Middleville, were killed.
The pickup driver and his passenger were hospitalized but are expected to recover. Officials say neither speed, nor alcohol appear to have been a factor.
