UPDATE:The Allegan County Sheriff's Office has identified the woman who died in Wayland Township Monday evening as Kendra Kaye Ohler. 27, from Hastings.
ORIGINAL STORY:Monday about 6 p.m. a Wayland City Police officer and an Allegan County Sheriff’s deputy responded to a report of a car in the ditch on 135th Avenue near 7th Street in Wayland Township and found an unresponsive woman in the vehicle, a sheriff’s media release said.
The investigation of the single car crash by the sheriff’s office reconstruction team determined that the vehicle was traveling eastbound and struck a deer, causing fatal injuries to a 27-year-old woman from the Hastings area.
