Speed believed to be a factor in fatal accident


Police believe speed may be a factor in an accident Friday morning on the Van Buren-Berrien County line.

Covert Township Police say crews were called to the 78000 block of 48th Avenue around 6:00 a.m. Friday after someone passing by found a crashed Pontiac Grand Am. Police say the driver, a 44-year-old woman, was already dead when she was found.

Police have not yet released the name of the woman who died. Investigators are waiting for the toxicology reports to come back to see if alcohol or controlled substances might have contributed to the crash.

Police say 48th Avenue in that area is a gravel road.
