Police on Friday released the name of the 66-year-old Southgate woman killed in a two-car crash Thursday on Interstate 94 near Rawsonville Road in Ypsilanti Township.
Judy Mackenzie was driving a 2001 Dodge Neon that rolled over in the median of the freeway, according to a news release from the Michigan State Police. She died from injuries suffered in the accident.
Fire crews from Van Buren Township attempted to extricate Mackenzie, who was pinned in the vehicle, but she was soon pronounced dead at the scene, said Ypsilanti fire Capt. Scott Madison.
Mackenzie was wearing a seat belt, according to state police. Troopers were first called out to the accident around 1:30 p.m. on the westbound lanes of the freeway.
The second vehicle in the crash was a silver 2013 Mitsubishi Galant driven by a 26-year-old woman from Melbourne, Fla. The woman, who also was wearing her seatbelt, suffered injuries in the crash and was treated at a local hospital, according to police. A 32-year-old California woman who was a passenger in the MItsubishi did not require medical attention. She was wearing her seatbelt, as well.
Police were not immediately releasing the details of how the accident happened.
"At this time the crash remains under investigation," the state police release states.
