A South Bend woman is dead after being struck by a vehicle while crossing US-12 in Cass County Friday morning. Michigan State Police tell us 78-year-old Carole Ann Martin had been shopping at a garage sale along the side of US-12 near Bell Road in Milton Township around 9:40 a.m. when the incident occurred. She was taken to South Bend Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead. State police remind everyone taking part in this weekend’s US-12 statewide garage sale to use caution when crossing the road. The woman had parked on the opposite side of the road of the sale she’d been browsing.
