Minivan Strikes, Kills Girl on Monroe County Road

By  | 

BEDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- The Monroe County sheriff's department says a woman driving a minivan struck and killed a girl who was walking along a road.

Deputy Brian Quinn says in a statement that the accident happened about 8:10 p.m. Saturday in Bedford Township, just north of the Ohio state line.

Quinn says that a 59-year-old Toledo, Ohio, woman was driving the minivan. He says the girl was walking near the edge of the road and says both she and the minivan were southbound.

The statement doesn't identify the girl or give her age. The Associated Press left telephone messages Sunday seeking more information.

Quinn says an investigation is continuing and says his department is asking anyone with information to contact it.
