Monroe Teen Killed In Head-On Collision

MONROE (WWJ) – An 18-year-old Monroe resident was killed Wednesday in a head-on crash in Frenchtown Township.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said Jakup MacMullen was driving southbound on North Monroe Street north of Mall Road when he crossed the centerline and hit a freight truck that was hauling gas cylinders.

MacMullen was killed in the crash. The driver of the truck, 49-year-old Robert Swonger, and MacMullen’s 21-year-old passenger were taken to the hospital where they are listed in stable condition.

Police say all involved were wearing safety belts and speed does not appear to be a factor in the crash. An investigation is ongoing.

Anyone who may have information about the crash is asked to call 734-240-7768.
