On May 10 2022, at approximately 6:10 a.m., Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the area of Michigan Avenue near 15 Mile Road in Marshall Township for a two vehicle injury crash.

Through initial investigation, it was determined a passenger vehicle, driven by a 34-year-old female from Battle Creek was traveling westbound on Michigan Avenue and was attempting to overtake/pass a vehicle that was also traveling westbound. 

The overtaking vehicle was not able to complete the pass before striking a full size pickup truck, being driven by a 62-year-old male from Battle Creek, that was heading eastbound. The 34-year-old female was pronounced deceased on scene. The 62-year-old male was transported to a local hospital for injuries.

The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by Marshall Township Fire, Marshall Area Fire Fighters Ambulance Authority, and Calhoun County Road Department.
