Update: 17-year-old dies following pin-in crash in Georgetown Twp

GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- A teenage girl is a dead and two people are seriously hurt after a two car crash.

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office responded just after 11 p.m., June 14th to the crash near westbound Chicago Dr and 18th Ave in Georgetown Township.

A 17-year-old Georgetown resident Sydney Carfine was driving a Saturn sedan southbound on 18th Ave when she blew past a flashing red traffic light.

At the same time, a GMC Sierra driven by a 52-year-old man and 28-year-old man from Texas entered the intersection via Chicago Dr, striking the Saturn on the driver's door, pushing it into a power pole in the median.

Fire crews worked to get both drivers and the passenger out of their vehicles before taking them to Butterworth Hospital for serious injuries.

Carfine was later pronounced deceased while the two Texas residents are in stable condition.

Deputies say the westbound lanes of Chicago Dr will remain closed until they complete their investigation.
