SANILAC COUNTY, MI – A 78-year-old woman died following a head-on collision late Thursday afternoon, May 9, on State Highway 46 in Moore Township.

The fatal accident took place near Isles Road, in an area west of Sandusky, shortly after 4:00 p.m.

Sanilac County Sheriff’s officials said a 31-year-old woman from Snover was driving eastbound on M-16 at the same time as a 15-year-old from Columbus, who was driving a 2019 Buick Enclave westbound on a learner’s permit.

At one point, the Snover woman attempted to pass another vehicle but ended up entering the path of the Buick.

While the teen driver tried to avoid the crash by veering to the right shoulder, the two vehicles ultimately collided head-on.

All involved occupants, including the teen, his 49-year-old mother, 11-year-old brother, and his grandmother, 78, were all rushed to a local hospital, along with the causing driver.

Some time later, the elderly woman from the Enclave succumbed to her injuries.

No charges have been reported at this time, but an investigation is in progress.
