MONROE COUNTY (WWJ) – More information is being released about a deadly crash on US 23 in Monroe County Friday that killed a woman and a young child. It was initially thought that the victims were from Ohio — but they’ve now been identified as a 35-year-old woman from Redford and her 5-year-old daughter.

Investigators say Gladys Johnson’s car was rear-ended by a pick up truck driven by 37-year-old Todd Moyer from Holt, Michigan. Authorities are saying Moyer, a strength and conditioning trainer at Michigan State University, was distracted behind the wheel when he struck Johnson’s car.

Johnson and her daughter Zakira died at the scene.

Charges are being considered against Moyer.

The collision led to a chain reaction involving several other cars.
