RAVENNA TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A 19-year-old woman died after failing to stop at a stop sign.

Her SUV hit the side of a trailer of a northbound semi-truck, driving off the road and into a ditch on the east side of Ravenna.

She was pronounced dead on the scene, while her passenger was transported to Spectrum Butterworth for non-life-threatening injuries.

The semi-truck driver was uninjured.
