Investigation into hit-and-run crash that killed 2 Royal Oak children continues
The investigation into the U.S. 23 hit-and-run crash that killed two Royal Oak children last week continues, but Michigan State Troopers had no new information to report Friday.
The crash claimed the lives of Ashley Siegel, 11, and Jordan Siegel, 14. The Royal Oak children were in a car driven by their stepmother Dawn Siegel, who told police her 1999 Ford Expedition was cut off and hit by a silver or gray Honda Odyssey, causing the Expedition to roll several times before coming to rest on its roof in the median of the highway.
The crash occurred just after 3 p.m. June 22 on southbound U.S. 23 south of Michigan Avenue. Michigan State Police still are looking for the driver of the Odyssey, described as a woman in her 40s.
Police said earlier this week the report was not finished and the accident reconstructionist was still working to determine if contact was made between the Odyssey and Expedition. Multiple witnesses told police contact was made.
Jordan and Ashley’s funeral took place on Tuesday.
Anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800 SPEAK UP (773-2587) or the Michigan State Police Brighton Post at 810-227-1051.
