COURTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – One person was killed in a head-on crash near Rockford Thursday morning.

The wreck happened just after 6:30 a.m. on 14 Mile Road between Northland Drive and 14 Mile Court in Courtland Township, Kent County sheriff’s dispatchers said.

MSP said a 27-year-old woman was driving east on 14 Mile Road in a Honda Element when her vehicle crossed the centerline into oncoming traffic and hit a Dodge pickup.

The driver of the Honda, 27-year-old Maria Colleen Boggiano, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the pickup was taken to a hospital in Greenville to be treated for non-life threatening injuries, MSP said in a release.

A section of 14 Mile was closed for more than four hours after the crash as the scene was cleared. It didn’t reopen until around 11 a.m.

The accident is under investigation. Anyone with information should call MSP Rockford at 616.866.4411.
