Police have released the names of the two individuals who died in a crash on December 24th near the intersection of Hastings Road at M-50.
Michigan State police identified the two 68 year old Jill Zakett of Hastings, and 34 year old Thomas Zakett of Beaverton.
State police say a Pontiac Vibe driven by Jill Zackett was northbound on Hastings Road Friday morning when she did not stop at the intersection and was struck by a GMC pickup truck that was eastbound on Thompson Road (M-50).
Both Jill and Thomas Zackett were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup truck, who was not identified, was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
The highway was closed between Hastings Road and Bell Road while emergency responders were on the scene. State police said the foggy weather on Friday may have contributed to the crash, which remains under investigation.
