HOWARD CITY, Mich. — A woman killed in a crash on Monday has been identified.

The head-on crash at 10:29 p.m. Monday involved two vehicles, one travelling south on Federal Highway. That vehicle, driven by a 64-year-old man from Sand Lake, crossed the center line and hit a minivan driven by Patricia Dingman, 55, of Howard City.

No one else was involved. It is believed neither driver was wearing seatbelts, but alcohol was not believed involved.
