Vehicle strikes pedestrian in Vergennes Township
VERGENNES TOWNSHIP, Mich. —
56-year-old Suzanne Raye Fedewa was struck by a vehicle at Lincoln Lake Avenue and Vergennes Street around 1 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, according to a press release from the Kent County Sheriff's Department.
Deputies say the investigation revealed that Fedewa did not yield the right of way to the driver, causing her to walk into the path of an oncoming Chevrolet Cruz driven by a 17-year-old Courtney Lawrence of Rockford.
Fedewa was transported to Butterworth Hospital by a Rockford ambulance with non-life threatening injuries; Lawrence was no injured in the accident. The accident remains under investigation, although officials have ruled out alcohol and speed being a factor.
