A 48-year-old White Cloud woman died last Saturday, October 10, after a two-car accident in Alpine Township.
According to the Kent County Sheriff’s Department, the accident occurred near the intersection of Fruit Ridge and 9 Mile Road, at 1:34 p.m.
The preliminary investigation showed that a northbound 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix driven by Kimberly Voorhees, 48, of White Cloud, crossed the centerline of the roadway to avoid hitting a slower moving vehicle and was struck by a south bound 2005 GMC Sierra Pick-up truck driven by Troy Guerra, 35, of Sparta.
Voorhees was transported to Spectrum Butterworth by Rockford Ambulance, where she later died of her injuries.
Guerra and his three pediatric passengers—Parker Guerra, 5, Tanner Guerra, 8, and Tanner Bormes, 9—were all transported to Spectrum Butterworth and treated for minor injuries.
This accident remains under investigation.
