St Clair County Sheriff Deputies investigated a two car crash at the Lapeer and Jarvis Road in Kimball Twp. yesterday. The crash resulted in two fatalities to the occupants of one of the vehicles.
According to St. Clair County Sheriff Mat King, 26 year old Alissa Grasak of Kimball Township was driving a 2008 Pontiac G6 westbound on Lapeer Road near Jarvis Road shortly before noon.
She was passing a vehicle when she swerved back into her lane to avoid a collision with an oncoming vehicle. When Grasak swerved, she overcorrected, went onto the north shoulder of the road, lost control, went back into the eastbound lane and was struck by a 2003 GMC Savanna van driven by a 53 year old man from Kimball.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, as was her passenger, 72 year old Ila Grasak, also from Kimball. The man was transported by Tri-Hospital EMS to McLaren Port Huron Hospital with undetermined injuries.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
Kimball Township Fire and Rescue also assisted at the scene.
