Paw Paw woman dies from traffic crash injuries
VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A woman from Paw Paw has died due to injuries from a crash last Sunday, police say.
The Van Buren County Sheriff's Department says 54-year-old Mary Jo Hendershot was a passenger on a motorcycle driven by Kevin Rocheleau, 54, also of Paw Paw. Deputies say they were heading southbound on M40 near M43 in Waverly Township last Sunday when a minivan, driven by a 38-year-old Indiana man, turned into their path.
Neither Hendershot nor Rocheleau was wearing a helmet. They were thrown from the cycle, suffering serious injuries, including head trauma, and were taken to Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo.
Deputies say when their investigation is completed, it will be given to the Van Buren County Prosecutor for review.
