Temperance woman killed in crash


ERIE, Mich. -- A Temperance woman was killed in a two-car, head-on crash in Erie Township today.

The woman, whose name is not being released by authorities until family members have been notified, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Justin Kitzmiller, 32, the other driver, was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, police said. His address was not released. A hospital spokesman said she had no information about a person by that name.

Police said the two cars were driving in the opposite directions on Telegraph Road just south of Luna Pier Road about 8:30 a.m. when Mr. Kitzmiller for unknown reasons apparently drove across the center line and into the path of the woman's car.

The crash remains under investigation.
