HEATH TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- Authorities say a newlywed couple died Tuesday after a three-vehicle crash near Hamilton.

The crash happened at about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday at M-40 and 128th Avenue in Heath Township.

The Allegan County Sheriff's Office says a vehicle traveling west on 128th Avenue did not stop at the stop sign and struck a northbound vehicle.  The northbound vehicle then went into the southbound lane of M-40 and was hit by a third vehicle.

The two people in the northbound vehicle, 24-year-old Logan Allbaugh of Holland and 22-year-old Hannah Kwekel of Zeeland, were killed in the crash.  The sheriff's office said in a release that they got married two weeks ago.

M-40 was closed in both directions between 128th Avenue and 134th Avenue for about four hours after the crash.  One of the drivers in the other vehicles suffered minor injuries in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
