BUCHANAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Four people were killed Friday in a crash in Berrien County.

The crash happened around 12:07 p.m. on N Main Street and Miller Road in Buchanan Township, northwest of Niles.

Authorities said a car driving on Miller Road didn’t stop for a stop sign, causing a crash with a vehicle that was going south on Main Street.

All four people in the southbound vehicle were killed in the crash. The driver and passenger in the other car were taken to the hospital.

Authorities have identified the victims as 52-year-old Kent Williamson from Virginia, 66-year-old Robert Klint, 60-year-old Melissa Klint and 22-year-old Landyn Klint, all from Sawyer.

Alcohol and speed are believed to be factors.

    Kent Williamson was a good friend of mine. The best guy you will ever meet. Kent, his sister, her husband and their youngest daughter were killed by this drunk driver who had many previous run ins with the law. Kent had 6 children and his sister had 5 children. Five children are left without a mother or a father and Kent’s children no longer have a father. Also, of course, Kent’s wife is now a widow. This is the saddest thing to happen to him and his family that I can imagine. If anyone is ever thinking of drinking and driving, I hope they will think twice after remembering what happened to this poor innocent family.
