GREENDALE TOWNSHIP, MI – The Midland County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a single vehicle traffic crash that claimed the life of a 22 year old Greendale Township woman.
The incident took place on West Prairie Road near South Magrudder Road in Greendale Township at approximately 5:44 pm on Sunday June 7th, 2020. The initial investigation indicates that the driver, Bryton Lalonde, 22-years-old, was driving her 1995 Jeep Wrangler and traveling westbound on West Prairie Road just east of South Magrudder Road. The driver went off the road to the left onto the soft shoulder. It appears that the driver then lost control when she tried to re-enter the roadway causing the vehicle to overturn. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Chandler Ross, 21-years-old, was the front seat passenger of the vehicle. It is unknown at this time if the passenger was wearing a seatbelt. Ross suffered minor injuries in the crash.
The Midland County Sheriff’s Office is waiting for toxicology reports to determine if drugs and or alcohol were a factor. The report will be forwarded to the Midland County Prosecutor’s Office for review once it has been completed.
The Midland County Sheriff’s Office were assisted at the scene by the Michigan State Police, Mid-Michigan Medical Center, Lee Township Fire Rescue and Chief Assistant Medical Examiner Dr. Dennis Wagner.
