Police Identify Man in Isabella County Crash

An elderly man who died after an Isabella County car crash last Friday has been identified.

Police say an 81-year-old woman driving a white, 2010 Ford EcoSport and her passenger, 80-year-old Daniel Sturgeon of Howard City, were going east on Broadway Road when the woman failed to yield at the Summerton Road intersection. The vehicle crashed with a black, 2011 GMC Terrain driven by a 19-year-old Beaverton woman. One of the vehicles was forced off the road and crashed into a garage, damaging the building and a vehicle inside it. No one was home at the time.

The elderly woman and man had what police described as non-life threatening injuries and were taken to a Midland hospital. However, while at the hospital, Sturgeon suffered from a cardiac episode and died. The occupants of the Terrain suffered only minor injuries.
