CONVIS TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A 19-year-old woman is dead after a crash in Calhoun County.

Deputies from the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office responded shortly after 3:30 a.m. Friday to the 17000 block of V Drive North in Convis Township for the single-car crash.

When deputies arrived, they found a 23-year-old Jackson man with serious injuries, according to a news release.

The 19-year-old passenger, also from Jackson, was unresponsive and crews rendered aid at the scene before she succumbed to her injuries.
