St. Joseph County Sheriff Mark Lillywhite says his department was sent to investigate the incident Tuesday, that happened around 9 AM. Deputies say a pickup driven by a 45 year old Sturgis resident was stopped on M-86 near Neaman Road for a westbound auto that was making a turn.

A Honda Accord, driven by a 70 year old Three Rivers resident was on M-86 and didn't see the stopped vehicles. The driver struck the rear of the pick up, veered off the road, striking an embankment and then overturning.
