Woman Turns Herself In After Crash That Killed Kids

PITTSFIELD TWP. (WWJ/AP) – Authorities say a woman has turned herself in to police in connection with a hit-and-run rollover crash that killed two children and injured several others.

AnnArbor.com reports Wednesday the woman was the driver of a Honda Odyssey, the same make and model police were seeking after the June 22 crash on U.S. 23 in Washtenaw County’s Pittsfield Township.

State Police said Dawn Siegel was hauling her 4 children and 2 step-children in the family minivan when witnesses said she was “cut off” by by another motorist driving an Odyssey. Siegel attempted to avoid the vehicle, but lost control on the shoulder and rolled over several times.

Michigan State Police Detective Dale Smith said the woman turned in the vehicle at the same time she turned herself in. Her name isn’t being released pending any possible charges in the case.

The funeral for 11-year-old Ashley Siegel and 14-year-old Jordan Siegel was June 26. They were students at Royal Oak Middle School.
