Woman killed in hit and run

Do you know who may have hit this woman?

The Kent County Sheriff Department is seeking information on who may have hit and killed a Sparta woman over the weekend on 14 Mile near Pennington in Algoma Township.

Erica Sevigny, 26, of Sparta, was on her way home from work at the Crazy Horse Saloon about 11:55 p.m. when police say she swerved to avoid a deer and hit a tree. She reportedly got out of her vehicle, and was on her phone with the Michigan State Police when she was struck and killed by a westbound vehicle.

Police believe that the vehicle that hit her is a SUV or pick-up truck. “Information received from evidence and other factors point to a higher-framed vehicle,” said Undersheriff Jon Hess.

Alcohol has been ruled out as a factor in the initial crash where she swerved to avoid the deer.

Police are asking anyone with information about the crash, or if they are aware of any unexplained fresh damage to a vehicle to contact the Kent County Sheriff Department at (616) 636-6100, or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345, or toll free at 1 (866) 774-2345. You can also text a tip to CRIMES (274637). The keyword TIP138 must appear on the first line of your text message in order to reach Silent Observer.

The Mass of the Christian Burial will be offered on Friday, April 9, 11:00 a.m. at Holy Family Catholic Church with Msgr. Terrence Stewart Celebrant. Erica leaves behind two young daughters, Emily and Madison; her parents Laura and Scott Sevigny; her fiancé Chad Miller; and many other loved ones. She reportedly just became engaged last week. Memorial contributions may be made for her daughters’ education fund at Hessel-Cheslek Funeral Home in Sparta.
