A crash at the intersection of 15 Mile and Myers Lake Avenue in Courtland Township Wednesday left one person dead and knocked out power to the immediate area.

The accident happened about 5:15 p.m. November 16. According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, a black pickup driven by Cody McKendry, 20, of Belmont, was traveling west on 15 Mile when he ran the stop sign and slammed into the driver’s side of a Mercury Sable heading south on Myers Lake. The cars reportedly rolled and hit a utility pole, bringing wires down on the truck. Emergency workers removed them and freed the driver, who told police he was unfamiliar with the area.

The driver of the car, Lori Wier, 50, of Solon Township, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Courtland Township Fire and Rescue, Cedar Springs Fire and Rescue, and Rockford Ambulance assisted at the scene.

Police said alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
