Midland County Crash Kills Bay County Woman

A 22-year-old Bay County woman is dead after an early morning crash Monday in Midland County. It happened shortly after 6:30 a.m. on E. Wheeler Rd. just east of N. Waldo in Midland Township.

Sheriff Myron Greene said the woman, whose name was not immediately released, was driving west on E. Wheeler Rd. when she lost control on a curve and went off the road. Her 2014 Chevrolet Impala crashed into trees and a ditch embankment, then overturned. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neither alcohol nor drugs were believed to be involved, but police say evidence indicates the driver was not wearing a seat belt. The crash was under investigation.
