One dead, toddler & woman injured in crash

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - A Muskegon woman is dead and a toddler and another woman are fighting for their lives following a vehicle accident in front of Hackley Hospital.

Around 9 a.m. Friday, Muskegon Police say a mini-van, headed north on Hoyt Street, ran through a red light at Laketon Avenue. The van slammed into a semi.

The crash impact spun the van around, ejecting throwing three of its occupants into the road.

Rosemary Evans, 62, died at the scene and Tawana Morris, 42, and Jmiah Evans-Selmon, 2, were taken by ambulance to hospitals in Grand Rapids in critical condition. The driver of the van, 35-year-old Lateashia Evans-Selmon, and the semi driver were not seriously injured.

Police do not believe either of the adults were wearing seat belts, and it does not appear the toddler was in a car seat.

The crash remains under investigation.
