Glen Arbor Woman Killed In Crash

By Beth Milligan | Jan. 10, 2019

A Glen Arbor woman was killed in a two-vehicle accident Tuesday morning on M-72 near Benzonia Trail.

Leelanau County Sheriff's Office deputies and Glen Lake Fire and Rescue personnel were dispatched to the scene of the accident at 7:54am. Upon arrival, responders found two vehicles with extensive damage and two injured drivers. A preliminary investigation determined that a 2016 Toyota SUV was headed south on Benzonia Trail when it failed to stop for the stop sign at M-72. The Toyota crossed into the intersection, and was struck broadside by a westbound 2009 Chevrolet.

The driver of the Chevrolet, a 31-year-old Empire man, was transported to Munson Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Toyota, 81-year-old Suzanne Herendeen of Glen Arbor, was also taken to Munson for treatment of severe injuries. She later died at the hospital of her injuries.

The accident remains under investigation.
