CASNOVIA, Mich. — The Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office says four people are confirmed dead and two others are injured, after a traffic accident that happened on Friday morning.

The crash occurred at around 6:30 a.m. near the round-about of Apple Ave (M-46) and Newaygo Road (M-37) in Casnovia Township.  Apple Ave was shut down for more than 3 hours for the investigation.

In a live interview with FOX 17 News, officials said weather was likely a factor in the crash.  It began with one vehicle spinning out.  The occupants of that vehicle then witnessed an SUV also losing control.  That SUV was then involved in a t-bone accident with a pickup truck.  All four fatalities were within the SUV and all 4 were females. 2 others who were riding in the SUV were taken to the hospital, while 3 people in the pickup suffered minor injuries. A police officer and nurse who were both off duty at the time stopped at the scene to try and help the victims. It appears that at least 2 of them were not wearing seatbelts.

The victims have been identified as:

35-Year-Old Erika Ceja from Newaygo

45-year-old Angelica Magana-Ceja from Newaygo

35-year-old Teresa Alvarez from Newaygo

23-year-old Jessica Magana from Newaygo

The crash is still under investigation.
