The incident happened about 8:45 a.m. on 52nd Street, just east of Byron Center Avenue.  Police say a pickup truck with a snow plow was heading west on 52nd when it struck a woman walking along the roadway. The driver of the truck left the scene.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The truck is described as a red, full-size Dodge Ram pickup truck, with a "V" plow on the front and a scraper plow on the back.  It had a yellow light on the roof, but had no writings or identification of plow company on it.

Police have identified the woman who was killed as Chelsea Crawford, 26, of Wyoming.  Her husband has set up a GoFundMe page.

Anyone with information should call Wyoming Police at 616-530-7300 or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.

    The blade was down in the back to totally Drench the Poor woman. Instead he Killed her,,,,
    Sure the driver was laughing as he seen in Her in the road in front and dropped the rear blade.
    The driver should be locked up for life for his actions and not 2 years of probation…..

    I knew her very personally. Chelsea was a sweet girl, she was very artsy and always gave a thoughtful gift. I was kind of the outcast in high school and she always invited me to her birthday or halloween bash, and even her grad party. We had many good times together… She didn’t deserve this.

    If you’re reading this, dear sir or madam, please turn yourself in. Better to turn yourself in and maybe recieve a lighter sentence than have them find you, and dear god, if you don’t and they find you, I hope you get the maximum sentence.

    That was someones wife and one of my best friends.

    Please do not remain an arrogant tosspot and turn yourself in.
