Aftermath of a car accident with two red cars

Last night, a pickup traveling north in the southbound lane struck and killed another driver in a Ford Mustang on US-131 in Plainwell, Michigan – just outside of Kalamazoo County.

The driver of the Mustang was identified as Jaryd Ford, who died at the scene of the accident according to police. The pickup’s driver was Jeremy Smeltzer, from Portage, who died at the Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo after he was airlifted to the hospital.

A woman, Megan Covey, of Wayland county, suffered injuries that were not life threatening. She was a passenger in the Mustang.

The crash is still under investigation.

While there aren’t a lot of details as to the cause of the accident, this is a terribly tragic event that cost 2 young men their lives. Goodwin & Scieszka would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims.
