Driver’s Medical Issue Causes Multiple Crashes

East China Township, MI — Several private property crashes in East China Township last night are believed to have been caused by a medical incident by the driver of the car causing the crashes.

Deputies from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office were called to Rivers Edge Mobile Home Park on Hathaway Street in East China Township at about 6:30 PM Wednesday night.  When they arrived, deputies saw that a vehicle driven by a 60 year old East China Township woman had crashed into three parked vehicles in the park, then travelled across South Riverside Avenue, went through a fence, struck a house and two more parked vehicles.

Members of St. Clair Fire and Rescue and Tri-Hospital EMS rendered aid to the woman at the scene of the crashes.  She was transported to Ascension River District Hospital in East China, where she was pronounced dead.

At this time, it is believed the woman died as the result of a medical incident and not from the vehicle crashes.  The incident remains under investigation.
