Passenger dies after collision

ADRIAN - A 21-year-old Blissfield man who was a passenger in a fatal car accident last weekend has died in St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center.

Justin Conger died Tuesday in the hospital, where he was taken after the traffic crash early Saturday on Palmyra Road, south of Deerfield.

The driver, Alejandro Francisco Garza, 20, died in the accident, which occurred after he lost control of the vehicle and it skidded off the road, hitting a large tree. Alcohol appears to have been a factor in the crash, the Lenawee County Sheriff's Office said.
