KENT COUNTY, Mich.–  A 66-year-old Grand Rapids woman was killed in a single-vehicle accident on Cascade Road in Kent County Tuesday morning.

The crash happened at about 9:00 a.m. near the intersection of Cascade and Buttrick, near the Thornapple River bridge.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Department Dispatch says they believe the driver, identified as Kathryn Ann Bush, was killed after the maroon van left the road and hit a tree.  She was the only occupant of the vehicle.

Deputies at the scene shut down Cascade Road in both directions between Buttrick and Cherry Lane.

Aero Med could not fly to the scene due to weather conditions.

The victim’s name has not been released.
