Ithaca Woman Dead after Head-On Crash in Gratiot County

A woman from Ithaca is dead after a head-on collision in Gratiot County on Sunday.

Law enforcement say that 60-year-old Bonnie Barrett was a passenger in a vehicle driven by her husband, 66-year-old Scott Barrett, going south on U.S. 127 around 3:15 p.m. when a northbound vehicle driven by a 16-year-old girl from Shepherd crossed the median and crashed into them head-on.

The Barretts were transported to a nearby hospital, where police say Bonnie died of her injuries. The 16-year-old was also taken to the hospital.

Investigators don’t believe alcohol was involved, and say that all three people were wearing seat belts.
