Bridget Brinkmeier, 24 of Courtland Township

A Cedar Springs woman died Saturday evening, when the truck that she and her fiancee’ were riding in left the roadway and rolled in Algoma Township.

According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, Bridget Brinkmeier, 24 of Courtland Township, was a passenger in a 2013 Chevy Silverado driven by Nicholas McIntyre, 24, also of Courtland Township. The car was traveling northbound on Northland Drive, just north of Russell Road, about 11:43 p.m. Saturday, November 24, when the driver lost control and the car ran off the west side of the roadway and rolled over.

Nicholas was transported to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital with minor injuries. Bridget was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to a family member, they both graduated from Rockford High School in 2004. They started dating in their sophomore year, and were planning to be married in March. She said they had been to the Food, Beer, and Wine Festival in Grand Rapids, and were less than a mile from home when the accident occurred. The family member said Bridget was sleeping in the back seat, and that Nicholas also fell asleep. She noted that his blood alcohol was below the legal limit.

Nicholas was originally booked into the Kent County Jail on a charge of OWI Causing death, but that charge was dismissed.

Police said the accident is still under investigation, and will be forwarded to the Kent County Prosecutor’s office for review.

The Algoma Fire Department, Rockford Police, and Rockford Ambulance assisted at the scene.

Bridget is the daughter of Bill and Jennifer Brinkmeier of Rockford. Funeral services are today, Wednesday, November 27, at 11 a.m., at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church, in Belmont.

Man arrested for stealing vehicle

Montcalm County Sheriff’s Detectives arrested a 17-year-old Owosso man Monday, August 8, for home invasion and unauthorized driving away of a motor vehicle in Montcalm Township.

On August 3, a home in the 7500 block of Sidney Road was burglarized, and the homeowner’s 2001 Chevy Silverado was stolen, along with other items. Over the weekend the pickup was recovered when it was stopped in Shiawassee County with four people inside. The suspect confessed to the crimes to Montcalm County detectives. Authorities may still seek charges on the man for possession of a stolen vehicle.

Sheriff’s deputies continue to work on a recent rash of home invasions and stolen vehicles occurring in the county. On Sunday, August 7, a citizen was camping on Wicker Road in Evergreen Township, when he noticed a pickup truck parked on state land. After several hours he called the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office. Responding deputies found that the vehicle, a 1998 Dodge Dakota, had been reported stolen from the Derby Lake area around August 4.

Sheriff Bill Barnwell reminds the public to keep a watchful eye on your neighborhoods, and report any suspicious vehicles or persons to law enforcement. If the public has any information on any crime and wishes to remain anonymous, call the Sheriff Detectives tip line at 989-831-7593.
