HOWELL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (Lansing State Journal) - A third victim in a Sunday fatal crash in Howell Township has died from her injuries.
Sheriff Bob Bezotte said 49-year-old Susan Bloomstine, of Wyoming, Mich., died from her injuries during the night at the University of Michigan Medical Center.
Also killed in the 5:21 p.m. crash were 80-year-old Charles Wright, of Wyoming, and George Tissen, 54, of Fowlerville.
Bezotte said witnesses indicated that Tissen, who was driving a 2002 Ford Ranger eastbound on Interstate 96, went into the median, traveled about 300 yards in the opposite direction and crossed to the westbound lanes where his vehicle collided with a 2007 Ford Taurus in the center lane, just west of M-59.
Police speculate Tissen experienced a medical event. "Witnesses said they couldn't see him driving," Bezotte said. "It was like he was lying down in the seat."
