According to the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office, the crash occurred on Thursday, September 5, about 4:21 p.m. on Johnson Road, south of Sidney Road, in Montcalm Township.

The investigation revealed that Ruby Hardin, age 63, from Gowen, was traveling southbound on Johnson Road, in a 2007 Chrysler Town and County, while Seth Davis, age 18, from Gowen, was traveling northbound in a 2012 Dodge Charger. Hardin approached a curve in the road, which she failed to negotiate, and crossed the center of the road hitting Davis’ vehicle head-on.

Davis sustained minor injuries and sought his own treatment. Hardin was unconscious at the scene and was transported to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids by Montcalm County Emergency Medical Services, where she was pronounced deceased.

Police said that both drivers wore seat belts and speed does not appear to have been a factor. The crash remains under investigation.

Assisting with the crash were Montcalm County Central Dispatch, Montcalm Township Fire, and Michigan State Police.
