WALKER, Mich. – A Comstock Park woman has died after a crash Thursday night.

Melissa Lynn Farr-Barnhart, 48, was killed in the crash that happened at about 9:00pm at North Park Street and Mill Creek Avenue.

Walker Police say Farr-Barnhart was the passenger in a Ford Freestyle that was turning left at the intersection.  That vehicle was hit by a Mercedes, driven by a 26-year-old from Grand Rapids.  Police say the driver of the Mercedes did not stop at the stop signs that were placed at the intersection due to West River Drive being closed.

Police are still investigating and the case will be forwarded to the Kent County Prosecutor for possible charges.  Police say that alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.
