Clarkston Woman Killed In Head-On Crash

INDEPENDENCE TWP. (WWJ) – Police say a 55-year-old Clarkston woman was killed in a two-car crash Tuesday in Oakland County’s Independence Township.

The Oakland County Sheriffs Office said Laurel Fyfe was turning at Sashabaw and Clarkston roads around 10:30 am when her 2004 Nissan was hit head-on by another vehicle.  Investigators said the driver of the other car, who suffered minor injuries, had a green light.

Both drivers were transported to a local hospital, where Fyfe was pronounced deceased by medical staff.

Police believe Fyfe was not wearing a seatbelt. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.
